LITTLE Kayla and Kirsten Mc Gayley Murray from Castleisland Co Kerry are truly two inspirational little girls.
While on holidays in Spain with her parents in 2010 Kayla (3) contracted Meningoccal meningitis and had to undergo very painful operations to try and save her legs and possibly her young life. Huge amountS of plastic surgery followed in Crumlin where she spent 3 months and in all that time Kayla never complained.
Although Kayla could not walk properly she managed to get around using the furniture to help her, such was her determination to get better. On February 20, 2011 she walked by herself for the first time and her parents Deirdre and Peter were overjoyed!
However this was short lived. Despite an unbelievable amount of treatment it was decided that to save Kayla's life they would have to amputate her right leg. This was devastating news for the parents and family but brave Kayla now has a brace fitted and is full of life and always with a smile.
Her twin sister Kirsten has always been on hand as her sister's friend, companion and protector.
So, when their parents asked Share a Dream to give the girls a special day out and to bring the Dream Machine to their house Share a Dream were thrilled to be able to do so.
Last Sunday the Dream Machine arrived in Castleisland to bedcome the twins' magic kingdom for two hours. Then they travelled to Tralee to meet Santa, receive gifts and dine in a beautiful restaurant.
