Brea aged 9, from Dublin, is currently in remission from acute myeloid leukaemia and recently had her wish granted to write her own book and become a published author!

Brea's published adventure novel titled, 'Lost & Found (A Bedtime story for my Brothers)’ tells the story of three children living on Achill Island and the adventures that await when they visit the forbidden beach caves.

Children’s author Catherine Doyle assisted Brea in writing her book and well-known illustrator Fatti Burke helped with illustrations for the novel. With thanks to our friends in Easons Ireland and Gill Books for hosting a wonderful book launch.

Brea’s Mum, Elaine, said, “Brea has had some tough times with her illness but the journey she has been on to make this wish happen has just been wonderful. Brea has always shown an interest in books and writing. It is truly amazing that she can now touch and feel her very own book that she created and is now published. I cannot tell you the value of this wish to Brea and the whole family.”
