The cast of Christmas pantomime Aladdin made a dream come true for a young teenager who is battling leukaemia for the second time at Liverpool's Epstein Theatre.
Katie Wright, from Childwall is a huge panto fan and has been unable to go and watch the show which has just opened as she is currently undergoing gruelling chemotherapy at Alder Hey Children's Hospital. Doctors are worried that if Katie were to sit in the audience amongst lots of other people she might pick up an infection.
After hearing Katie’s plight, theatre staff invited Katie to come to the dress rehearsal for a sneak preview of the show. It was a great afternoon for Katie who got to meet the stars of the panto.
Katie's family have now discovered that her best chance of survival is an incredibly costly treatment only available in the US. They are now trying to raise £120,000 to help in her second fight against leukaemia.
