Eleven-year-old Sophie Rowland from Roscrea is a very special and courageous young lady.
Sophie, like all young girls her age have dreams but for Sophie they take on an entire new meaning. Sophie has suffered all her young life and has spent endless journeys to hospitals all over the country trying to get some quality of life for her very complicated and debilitating illnesses. Sophie has been very ill since January to date and thus she missed school, her friends and celebrating her 11th birthday party in February as she was in Crumlin hospital and is even still recovering at home. So when Sophie’s mum contacted Shay Kinsella of Share a Dream to see if there was anything they could do to help give her a lift and have a party with all her friends and cousin the Dream Team jumped into action. Shay promised Sophie that when she was up to it he would get the Dream Team to organise a magical day for her and a birthday party she would always remember. So when the Dream machine pulled up outside her front door with a very special guest Princess Elsa and all her relations and friends turned up it was truly a moment to cherish to see her face.
