Two-year-old from Bradley Stoke completes challenge despite undergoing chemotherapy.
In the August edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine, we wrote about Jessica Abrahams’ sponsored challenge to visit all 80 sculptures in the Gromit Unleashed public art exhibition. Here, Jessica’s mum Melissa has written to tell us how she got on.
I’m pleased to say that Jessica completed her Gromit Hunt and even made it to London to visit Classic Gromit! To date, she has raised a massive £2,095 for The Grand Appeal. Thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to sponsor her and help her to achieve this fantastic total. The response has been amazing.
Jessica thoroughly enjoyed her summer of Gromit Hunting and her favourite Gromits were Gromberry and Roger. It has been lovely to watch Jess and her big sister Zoe get excited every time we spotted a new Gromit
At times it was difficult to fit it in around hospital visits and Jessica just not being well enough to be out and about, but we are very pleased we managed it before the trail ended.
The Gromit Hunt gave Jessica and ourselves something positive to focus on during what has been a difficult period in her treatment and for that we are very grateful.
Jessica has continued to respond well to her treatment and her prognosis remains good. She will shortly be finishing this intensive period of chemotherapy and moving into approximately eighteen months of less intensive maintenance therapy. She is a very happy and very brave little girl and we couldn’t be more proud of her.
