Her mother Ann Marie Lowry said the Dine At Mine fundraiser for Camp Quality would be for the neighbours, family, god-parents and doctors who had helped with Georgia’s miraculous recovery from a rare and aggressive leukaemia.

Mrs Lowry said her daughter, now 19, received a bone marrow transplant from her two-year-old sister Grace when she was six months old.

Complications from the transplant made recovery long and difficult ” Georgia spent four months in hospital.

Just before the family was due to holiday in Thailand, they learned the leukaemia had relapsed and Georgia was given steroid treatment to prevent it worsening rapidly.

‘Generally a relapse after transplant is a death sentence,’ Mrs Lowry said.

‘I had a child who was nearly four, Georgia and a newborn, and we took the steroid treatment to Thailand, expecting her to be worse when we got back.

‘The doctors were gobsmacked her leukaemia had improved’
