Like most little girls, Fae Spearman dreamt of having her own pony.
Yesterday, with a pitter-patter of tiny hoofs and the help of the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the six-year-old's dream became a reality in the form of a pony named Gypsy.
It was a golden moment for Fae, who has spent the past 18 months fighting neuroblastoma.
Her parents Glenn and Toni said they were truly grateful to Make-A-Wish and all those who assisted for making Fae's wish come true.
"They're just amazing," Mrs Spearman said.
"It's just what a child needs when they've gone through so much treatment and heartache."
It has been a difficult 18 months for the family, filled with relentless treatments and now an anxious wait for further test results.
And little Fae has tackled the biggest battle of her short life head on, her parents say.
"Fae is unbelievable," Mrs Spearman said.
"She's so strong and it's never fazed her really . . . she just gets on with it."For more information or to help, visit www.makeawish.org.au or call 1800 032 260.
