Holiday, family and school
As Jess’ guardian we managed to get to Cyprus this year, although we have had to cancel three times previously. Very recently Jess was admitted to our local hospital and we had to cancel a sleepover she had been really looking forward to. She was absolutely desolate and she sobbed for quite a long time. Jess then refused to speak to anyone, including the nurses; it took her several days to get over this.
Jess lives with her younger brother and sister, Taylor, 8, and Mia, 6. The older they are becoming, the more they are understanding. Mia especially finds the separation very hard whilst Jess is in hospital. We try to send Jess to school as often as we can, but Jess still has substantial absences. She can sometimes find going back to school very stressful; luckily she has an excellent school and a very good group of friends. Whilst not at school she keeps in contact with her friends via her phone.
Jess loves designing and baking cakes, she also enjoys any arts and crafts.
