Danielle's colourful wish

WHAT better way to celebrate 21 years of Bundaberg's Make-A-Wish Foundation than to make another person's dream come true.

“I'm very overwhelmed,” 14-year-old leukaemia patient Danielle Wales said, as she was showered with a variety of gifts, including an Apple Mac computer and a printer/copier and scanner in one.

“We heard she loves purple,” Bundaberg Make-A-Wish president Ms Russell said at the Fairymead House celebration Sunday.

Volunteer Pat Fines put together a purple pillow and teddy for Danielle, while Moyra Boyle embroidered a purple towel.

“What they've done is priceless - it really comes from the heart,” Danielle's mum, Alison Wales said.

“Pat couldn't do enough for us.

“We never wanted to be in this situation, but you try to think positive.”

Danielle, Alison and dad Clive came straight from Brisbane, where she received more treatment, to Bundaberg and went back to Gladstone last night.

Danielle was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia, acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, in February this year.
