omg, this story makes me cry, I’m so friggin touched…..
Evan, aged nine and living with a twisted cervical spine & Heptoblastoma (liver cancer), wished to meet Dame Maggie Smith after being inspired by her performance as Professor McGonagall in the Harry Potter films.
He was over the moon when he found out his wish was going to happen, and just before Dame Maggie entered the room he whispered to his Mum “I think I’m gonna faint”!
Maggie agreed to meet Evan, who was diagnosed with liver cancer on Christmas Eve 2010 after experiencing appendicitis-type symptoms, at a local hotel in Cambridge. She arrived laden with gifts for Evan, including his favorite Cadbury Caramel chocolate and a baby cactus plant, and spent two hours chatting to him over afternoon tea.
Evan’s Mum Sarah told Make-A-Wish: “The best thing about Evan’s wish was how much genuine care and concern Maggie showed for all of us. She was empathetic and showed real interest in Evan, we had her attention 100%. The wish took place exactly a year after Evan was told he was in remission, so it was an incredibly special celebration.”
Dame Maggie, who is famously sharp-tongued, is the perfect granny, says Toby. ‘She loves, really loves, being around them. She was stern with me but around them she is a real softie. That’s the privilege of being a grandparent — they can indulge the children while parents have to be the bad guy. Grandparents can also be subversive and naughty with them. And she certainly is.’ (I meant to post a photo of Maggie surrounded by her little grandchildren but can’t find any, so I take this one instead :D)
