A six-year-old girl missed out on Christmas celebrations in December 2016 because of her chemotherapy. However, she was a guest of honor in July 2017 when she celebrated at a special winter wonderland party.

Agatha King was stunned when she arrived at London's Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Star Awards party. She was invited to ring the bell and celebrate the "festive" season with her family and other kids.

The winter wonderland event allowed her to meet Santa and experience the magic of Christmas, albeit seven months later. The little girl loved playing in the snow and eating gingerbread biscuits.

A NEW CHAPTER

Her mom, Karen, expressed that the previous year's Christmas was not ideal. Their little girl was constantly in the hospital, so they couldn't have the celebration they hoped for. Agatha also missed her school's Christmas play, and she was gutted.

The special event made up for this. The mom hoped the party was the beginning of a happy new chapter in their lives. Along with 20 other kids, the festivities were packed with surprise performances and fun.

CHANGED THEIR LIVES FOREVER

TV presenter Mister Maker was also present and gave the children a wonderful experience. The little girl deserved this and more after all she had been through since her diagnosis at age four. A simple rash turned out to be leukemia.

Karen explained:

"It has impacted on our lives more than you could possibly imagine. No two days are the same. You plan something and your plans change."

THEY FACED SETBACKS

The family also faced various setbacks in their daughter's health journey. From infections to extended hospital stays, it was never easy.

However, the family did everything to ensure Agatha had some good memories. She met many famous stars and gave the Queen a bunch of flowers.

THE END OF HER CHEMO

The party was the perfect way to celebrate her final stint of chemotherapy. The King family has many things they still want to do with their little girl, such as teaching her to ride a bike.

Karen shared that Agatha's illness left her weak and unable to do things other kids her age would. However, the brave girl was determined to work toward getting stronger.

SHE IS A FIGHTER

While the journey ahead would still be long and challenging, the little girl is a fighter. Her mom said it would take baby steps for her to return to a sense of "a normal life." They would undoubtedly be there for her every step of the way.

Linda Summerhayes, a Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens representative, shared that it was an honor to celebrate kids like Agatha who have been through tough times. Their efforts allowed many families an opportunity to celebrate and have fun together.
