Pippa Rea

Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour


This year Pippa went on her first “Trick or Treat” Halloween.  The excitement was intense; so intense she was worried that she wouldn’t be able to sleep when I brought her home for a nap beforehand.  A little soft relaxation music in the background, a heat pack and she was out like a light.  I’m glad I brought her home for a sleep because the rest did seem to help give her breathing and talking a “second wind”.

The dress up component was highly anticipated and the most important part of it was the make up – practised the day before and then applied by Tom.  It was the real deal – techniques direct from backstage theatre!

Pippa headed off to her friend Izzy’s to join Scarlett and Lucy to Trick or Treat a handful of pre organised houses.  I believe the giggles and fun probably outweighed the scariness of any costume.  Just as well because if you ignore the gorgeousness behind the make up, Pippa was terrifyingly scary!
