Little Mia Wilkinson has been through the year from hell. The five-year-old with the contagious smile beat off deadly sepsis, which she developed after a bout of the flu. Sadly, the bubbly preppy lost both her arms and her legs.
Working with The Courier-Mail and Mia’s parents, Peter and Amy Wilkinson, Mia’s story was featured in Saturday’s premier page 3-4 spread. Thanks to the many amazing Australians who donated (one check for $500 was sent to The Courier-Mail ), and the remarkable Courier-Mail team that donated $30,000 to the Wilkinson family, Mia will now have new prosthetics for Xmas.
