Seven-year old Ebony was a daddy’s girl and mad about the circus. Ebony was diagnosed with neuroblastoma before her 4th birthday and her family’s life revolved around endless hospital visits and rounds of treatment as Ebony battled her cancer.
Ebony was a special guest at Circus Starr’s big top show in Doncaster along with her mum Tammy, her dad Ashley and older sister Chantelle. Tammy describes their day:
“Making memories is a special thing. The last few years have been tough but we keep going because we have no choice. Being able to run away to the Circus Starr show and enjoy time spent together as a family away from hospital beds, chemo and radiotherapy was a tonic.
Seeing Ebony chuckle and point as Chico the clown picked her Dad to perform in the ring are moments we’ll treasure forever.”
Sadly, Ebony died on 21st November 2016 just two and a half months after her day at the circus. We feel very privileged to have met such a brave and beautiful girl and her family.
