Aurora's Story

Aurora was born on 7th July 2011 and from the moment she entered the word, she became her mum Keisha's best friend.

Aurora stole the hearts of every person she ever met even before she could talk with her big doe eyes and curly hair, but as she grew, so did the love that everyone had for her. She was far older than her years, witty as they come, and funny as anything.

Aurora was an incredible big sister, giving Bonnie, Ada and Oscar the best role model to look up to. She had a habit of bringing out the best in people, an amazing daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, and friend.

Showing strength and resilience throughout, Aurora fought Burkitts Lymphoma for more than 12 months and underwent a bone marrow transplant to try to beat the disease but sadly in June 2021, mum Keisha was given the devastating news that there was nothing more than could be done to save her precious girl.

Sadly, on 29th June 2021, just days before her 10th birthday, Aurora passed away. Her mum shared the news with the local community, many of whom had rallied around he family during the toughest of times.

"After eight days at home, our baby took her last breath shortly before midday yesterday with Ethan and I by her side. She went peacefully, and spent the past 8 days surrounded by the love of all of her parents and siblings. I could write a million words about how I feel, but none of them would do justice. Grief is completely overwhelming and we’re grateful that all of our family and friends have been showering us with support. Rest peacefully beautiful girl. 07.07.11-29.06.21.”
