My Angel Tree is a touching and honest tribute to the life of a very special daughter. Jessica was diagnosed at the age of 10 with an extremely rare form of liver cancer. Her journey through illness is told through the eyes of her mother, Kirsty, who remained always by her side and guided by an extraordinary sense of honesty. An honesty which enabled Jessica to make her own decisions about care and also to choose when she no longer wanted to continue with treatment, knowing full well she would not survive. This is an emotionally moving journey, covering the most harrowing of decisions and the final death of a much loved and treasured child. It is the gift of a true experience which gently walks the inevitable decline and final loss of Jessica, the impact on her family and especially the experience of her Mum. The involvement of the Children s Hospice, Little Bridge House in North Devon, is integral to the survival of the family. The book highlights the work of Children s Hospice South West and recognises the strength of support and encouragement the family continue to receive. Jessica was an inspirational child who touched the hearts of many people both in her local community and further afield. In her final months of life she met Myleene Klass, a meeting which moved Myleene greatly. The following year she dedicated her debut Album Moving On to Jessica s memory.
