Andrea Stanescu will celebrate her birthday twice this year

Andrea celebrating her birthday

April can be a month full of fun at St Margaret’s Hospice as there are three birthdays to celebrate but for some years the kids have had one big party for Andrea, Florin and Denisa to celebrate their joint birthday, on the 23rd of this month.  This event comes with all the fun of cream cake, ice cream and jelly, fruit juice, the excitement of more than one sparkling roman candles on the bigger than normal cake as well as music and dancing. Everyone joins in and the staff ensures that everyone is involved.

This year Andrea will actually have two parties for on the 8th of April, Andrea’s actual birthday, she was given her cards and also received the gift of a beautiful cross from one of her sponsors, Mary Barbour. Mary lives in Ely and is part of the Fund –a-Physio (F-a-P Ely) team who do so much to ensure children like Andreas are kept supple through a regular programme of physiotherapy care.

Over the last few years Andrea has had some close calls but she has overcome adversity and is returning to the happy young lady we all used to know.

Happy birthday Andrea! On your behalf we share your thanks to Mary for her kindness, your card and the beautiful gift which an very happy and smiley Andrea now refuses to take off even in the shower.
