Alyssa's Story

Six-year-old Alyssa wishes to drink hot chocolate with Santa in Lapland and meet her pet husky Logan’s brothers and sisters who, Alyssa believes, live in Lapland with all the other snowdogs!

Alyssa is an outgoing girl who loves to sing, dance and play with her dog. But she had a tough start in life. Everyone had thought Alyssa had a touch of jaundice as a baby. Then her eyes began turning yellow and she was referred for blood tests at hospital.

Mum Tracy found herself being ushered behind closed curtains as doctors gathered around her. They had found a serious problem with Alyssa’s liver and she needed a transplant urgently. In just a few moments, Alyssa’s life was changed forever.
