Laura says her daughter knows more about empathy than most adults.
"It’s safe to say that Freya hasn’t had the easiest year this year. From being dragged half way round the world with us to watch me going through the most difficult treatment imaginable to being separated from me for weeks on end when I was in isolation first in Moscow and then in Dublin. She missed school, dancing, play dates and Birthday parties all because her going to those things would put me at risk of infection. She never once complained that it wasn’t fair. She never once made me feel guilty for the sacrifices no 6 year old should have to make."
Laura explained that Freya has just finished filming a little documentary with RTÉ.
"Yesterday, she got to be Freya ,the 6 year old girl filled with the excitement and innocent wonder of Christmas. It really was the stuff that dreams are made of ... It certainly helped being introduced to everyone she met as being Freya the star of her own film too!"
