Gorgeous nine year old Iliana was diagnosed with a tumour in her optic nerve and because of where it is situated is classed as a brain tumour. Iliana’s mum told The Dream Factory how their world fell apart and every ounce of normality disappeared in one phone call from a consultant. Iliana underwent an intensive chemotherapy programme to initially try to save her vision – Iliana had to attend hospital every week for her chemo. Throughout the whole journey Iliana embraced nearly every day with a smile and remained extremely positive and brave and has made her family so proud.
Iliana’s dream was go to Disneyland Paris and see her favourite princess Belle and spend time with her family as more than anything else, making memories is what makes her truly happy.
The Dream Factory were absolutely delighted to make Iliana’s dream come true creating magical memories to last forever.
A message from Ilians’s mum
‘Hi Seema and Annabel
I once again just wanted to say a massive thank you for absolutely everything you’ve done for my family! We had the best time and created amazing memories!
We miss Disney!’
The Dream Factory would like to thank Henry Lunn for sponsoring Iliana’s dream at The Silver Leys Polo Event which was held in June 2023
