Hidden at the bottom of a giant pink box was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Milan... concert tickets and a VIP meet and greet with her favourite band, Little Mix!
The band thoughtfully offered this experience to Milan after seeing her video requesting them to visit Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital when they were in town. Milan and her mum captured this special experience so the joy could be shared with the other Little Mix fans throughout the hospital.
Milan has chromosome 18q deletion, a rare syndrome that affects many aspects of her body. She was diagnosed at the age of two, and was one of the first patients diagnosed with the syndrome at the Royal Brisbane Children’s Hospital. Upon diagnosis there was very little information on the syndrome’s affects, but now as she is getting older, most of the conditions resulting from the deletion are known.
Milan never has and never will let anything stop her from doing what she loves. This 13-year-old sings, dances, and has her own YouTube channel, and we can certainly vouch that she was born to perform!
We first met Milan on Juiced TV screens in 2016 when she was our roving reporter at the Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Halloween Party. She then returned taking us behind the scenes of Cirque Du Soleil’s ‘Kooza’, and starred in her own mini movie ‘Pirates of the Lady Cilento: A Pirate’s Life’ at Sea World.
There is never a dull moment when spending time with Milan, and we are sure her cheeky spirit will also make you smile from ear to ear!
