Happy Birthday Starship

Happy Birthday Starship!
I had a liver transplant when I was a baby. Now I go to school and I am in year three at Birkenhead Primary School. My teacher is Mrs Teague - she is a bit crazy, and funny and I think she is the best teacher in the world. I do jazz dancing every Tuesday and I do swimming on Saturday.
When I go to Starship now it is for a blood test, or sometimes emergency when I'm not feeling good. Sometimes we go for clinic and see Dr Simon and Karyn the nurse and I get a check-up.
Starship is a great place because they fix children who are sick, or need a transplant and all that stuff!
New Zealanders (ones who know you) love you so HAPPY BIRTHDAY STARSHIP!
Love from Issy.
