Child Interests

Robyn has an obsession with all things about Dragons. She has of course read all the How to Tame your Dragon books but as an avid reader she consumes all novels that feature dragons and all non fiction books about the myths of dragons.
She has dragon models hanging from her bedroom ceiling and would love a quilt that featured dragons perhaps doing things like reading or doing sports? as well as more traditional dragons flying or emerging from their eggs. Her favourite food is jacket potato/baked potato so perhaps this could also feature. perhaps a dragon could be using a nebuliser to breathe? or have a canula in a foot?
her bedroom is teal blue as she is not a pink kind of girl. A key slogan for her is Strong is beautiful.

A key slogan for cystic fibrosis is Just Breathe and of course a dragon breathes fire!! Her favourite sports are gymnastics and Taekwondo, kick boxing and street dance.
She is interested in all things about science and space. She needs empowered women as role models. Women who overcame obstacles in their life.


Robyn is a lovely girl who copes bravely with a genetic illness that means she tires easily, has to do physiotherapy twice a day, take medicine and needs to undergo treatments every day of her life without fail. She has to do sport to help her cough up the mucus that clogs her lungs.

She takes medicine to control the symptoms and has to eat high fat foods as her digestive system is impaired.

She is an only child as Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder and her parents feel that though they could use IVF to have a second child that would be free of the disease how would they be able to look Robyn in the eye and says you have this life limiting illness but we made sure your sibling doesn't.

As she is classed as vulnerable she has had to stay indoors for 15 weeks this year as she shields from Covid. She says if only she did not have cystic fibrosis!

She so deserves a special gift as she is kind, thoughtful and caring and is stoic about her illness and the way it means her life differs from others.
