Danielle’s Journey – Easter Update

I’ve had a busy few weeks over the Easter period, with special events and opportunities which I’ve enjoyed with enormous appreciation. I have been feeling really well, although I’m exhausted now as I’ve pushed myself.

On Sunday 15th March 2015 I was invited as a special guest to the Belfast Giants’ game to drop the ceremonial puck. It was an amazing experience walking onto the ice (and I didn’t slip), hearing my name being announced to all the supporters as well as hearing my Fund’s hashtag #TeamDanielle, dropping the puck and meeting some of the Giants again. It is a day I will remember forever.
