Super Flora’s Journey
Flora was diagnosed with a Pilocytic astrocytoma brain tumour and had to undergo a 15-hour operation to remove most of it. She is now having chemotherapy for 12 months. She spent 16 weeks in hospital recovering and learning to walk again. She has had many complications from the surgery and now takes lots of different medication every day.
Flora’s mum says, “We are just in love with Flora’s Supershoes - they are the most beautiful shoes we have ever seen, and Flora loves to tell everyone about them and proudly shows the different characters who appear on them. -
