I hope with lots of support we can raise as much money as possible to fund much needed research, so future families that have a loved one diagnosed have hope, and don't get told the terrible news we had to have.
I miss you so much Aurora.
Dear Margherita, Franco and brave Isabella and Chiara,
Thank you for the information of Aurora's fund raising charity.
I know you are a very private person Margherita, to share your private feeling on this web site,
shows your courage for your much loved daughter.
We are so proud of you all. when this so called safe predictable world suddenly dissolved around
your family with the news of Aurora's illness; you coped with a new born baby and older daughter.
Being a mother and wife, together with Franco his role being the back bone of the family, the provider
We were allowed to share a small part of fun and games with Aurora, even when she had bandages around
her head she didn't let that get her down, to our alarm we were worried she would hurt herself
dancing and singing with her cousins and sister on many visits to the house. We still hear the laughter
of the girls which brings us comfort on sad day when we think of her.
We wish you to be motivated and keep the candle burning for our sweet brave Aurora's charity and wish you our support
on the fun raising events.
love from your sister in law, brother and your nieces Rossana and Simona
Dear Margherita, Franco, Isabella, Aurora, Chiara
How very special you are to us all.
We were blessed to have Aurora even for a short time. God allowed this Beautiful girl to be in our family, how honoured are we. The memories will last a lifetime. We will do all we can to support this very special charity in memory of Our Beautiful niece.
Your sister Daniela, Kevin, Luca, Ella. xxxxxx
Very very emotional to read as i have been campaigning for awareness into this awful underknown illness since my operation in 2008. I was aware of your story and emotionally had your daughter in mind when doing the events i have done to raise money and awareness. One of which was i believe in her school and very much supported by all the staff who knew Aurora and loved her.
Well done for your bravery to create this group as i also know how private you guys are as a family.
I have worked tirelessly for the last two years for awareness and will be more than happy to back you and work with you wonderful parents and sisters.
so brave and so strong.....please everyone keep Aurous memory alive by supporting them.
All my love Nicole Witts x
I apologise for spelling her name wrong above. Aurora is the correct spelling. Nicole x
Aurora was a very special little girl and will always been in my heart. 4 Aurora is a fantastic and positive way to remember her and to raise awareness for brain tumour research. I will do all I can to support this charity.
All my love
Words alone cannot explain how much we miss you. You will need to look in to our hearts to see the emptiness you have left. You gave us so much joy. Your wonderful smile, the jokes we shared, our laughter would fill the house. Your illness did not stop you from doing what you wanted. You had so much energy-you never stopped .You did so very much in your little life, more than most people in their life time. Never did you feel sorry for yourself. You brought a smile to everyone you met. We know that you have not left us, that you will always be with us, giving us the strength to go on. Although we cannot see you, when we feel low we can feel you caressing us and kissing us, giving us your strength. We hope our Lord God will keep you under his wing till we meet again in our eternal home.
We are so glad your Mum and Dad have found the strength to start this charity in your name, We will do all we can to support them.
He shall give his Angel charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
I had the honour of knowing Aurora for a short while. What struck me about her was her kind, loving and altruistic heart.If every child was made in her likeness, there would definitely be more love in the world.
As a family you are truly inspirational and anyone who is lucky enough to know you is simply blessed. By setting up this charity, you are indeed continuing her legacy. Offering hope to other families is the ultimate tribute to a young girl so full of life.
Aurora - may the angels keep you safe while you continue to guide your loved ones on their journey.
I will support your charity in any way possible. Just say the word.
all my love to you all always
ornella,mia-rosa and matteo
by setting up this charity you are continuing Aurora's legacy in the best possible way.
Nonno & Nonna are sending you so much love and kisses for your 12th birthday. We miss you so very much sweetheart. Come to us in our dreams so once more we can be together again.
Eternal God from whom every family in heaven and earth takes its name,
We remember today our child whom you lent to us to love and is now taken from us.
Hold each one in peace today and forever. And as we offer you our memories of her unfinished life,
Bring us at last to rejoice together in the light and love that have no end;
Through your own child who died and was raised to glory,
Our Saviour Jesus Christ
Aurora today is your birthday.And as we remember you,lets think of all the times you made us smile. We will never forget you as you live on in every one of us. Happy Birthday our sweet girl.We are sending you lots of kisses and hope they reach you in heaven. We love and miss you more than words can say.
Zia Daniela, Zio Kevin, Luca and Ella.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
In my Aurora's absence
Life hangs upon me, and becomes a burden;
I am ten times undone, while hope, and fear,
And grief, and rage and love rise up at once,
And with variety of pain distract me.
Aurora it's your birthday today, all I can think about is what we could be doing together, but you have been taken from me and now i live with this endless emptiness ♥
Buon compleanno piccola stella spendente che da lassù ci proteggi come non mai! Ci manchi da morire. Ti penso ogni giorno di più anche se ci siamo viste pochissime volte quando eri piccolina....sei sempre stata nei miei pensieri. Tua cugina
I am with Maria(nonna) and we are thinking of everyone wearing hats today in memory of Aurora. I only met Aurora briefly but I know she was such a special little person as she touched and continues to touch and inspire so many lives. May there be much fun, love and laughter today as children and grown-ups enjoy 'the hat day'. Well done Margherita & Franco, Isabella and Chiara for raising much needed funds for research into brain tumours. I am pleased and privileged to support you. God bless you all. Sue
Dearest Margherita, Francesco, Bella, Aurora and Chiara,
I was not very close to Aurora and I was not in her year, but I'd known Aurora since the day she started school. I am close with Isabella and she is one of my best friends. Even though I was not extremly close to Aurora she was still my friend, I adored and admired her much, I never saw her frown, not even through the hardest of times. I hope Aurora can see how much people love her.
R.I.P Aurora, sweetie.
As i look at the photos of hat day. I sit here, thinking of you Aurora, you would be so proud. You would laugh at nonno peppe with his hat on!! Our hearts are empty without you.
Your Zia Daniela Loves you. xxx
Dear Margherita Franco Isabella & Chiara
I have looked at your website, it is a wonderful and worthwhile tribute to Aurora's memory,and very courageous of you to try to help others from your terrible loss,but having known you when you were younger and your character,(I still remember all those laughs I had with you, Daniela,James, and Mum I'm not surprised.I have felt very emotional, as you know we only met Aurora on a few occasions, but the last time at Ella & Luca's Christening,she struck me straight away as a very special little girl, intelligent,very artistic and very caring. We kept in touch by e-mail, she was interested in my Art, and although she was already ill, she was always upbeat, and because she knew I had Arthritis was always asking how I was!!! a remarkable girl, I carry her picture that you kindly sent me, in my purse always, she really did touch peoples' lives & will never be forgotten I will try to show your website to some friends and try to get some more support for your funding.
love from Joyce and Antonio xx
Tears forever falling from my raw red eyes,
Putting on my make up hiding behind a disguise,
Pretending nothings happened, trying my best to hide,
Never has something ever made me cry,
Like the dark, depressing day, where you sadly died.
And for you Beautiful family and your sake Aurora, always rest in peace until your family's wings appear and follow you to the clouds.
Margherita, Francesco, Bella, Aurora and Chiara...This is a poem I wrote for Aurora; I hope you like it. Much love, God Bless;
My poem for Aurora:
Here I perch my angelic body
Upon a cloud of snow
As I turn my shimmering face
To look down below.
There I see my hopes and dreams
My loved ones from my past
How can I not see and touch them?
It's like I'm sitting behind glass.
Oh how they look so melancholic
As if swallowed up by a black hole
Missing pieces never to return
The atmosphere is ice cold.
But why must they be living like this
As if tied up, never to be let go
It's as if they're just pretending
Not letting their emotions show.
As I live among the clouds
Watching down on my family
I forever wish to say to them
"You can always see me....
If you look into your broken heart
And search for what you desire
Keep calm, keep looking
Beyond that burning fire
And soon you will come to a shining light
A light that will give you your answer
Sitting on a snow white cloud
Will be a daughter, sister and grandaughter.
This is where I will always be
Always and forever
Until you join me in the palace above
Where we can be together."
Dear Margherita, Francesco, Bella, Aurora and Chiara,
I am know i was best friends with Aurora and she will always be mine.
I am so glad so glad we met and that we are very close.
Izzy you are one of my best friends and we are very close aswell.
Lots of love your best friend Zoe <3 xxx
Hi, it was a blessing being able to have such a special time praying with your strong family. You have really touched me, I didn't know you, but God lead your family to us today which is no coincidence. I continue praying for your family and hope to see them again sometime soon. All my love.
Prayer of Thy Healing Angels, That is carried from God by Michael Thy Archangel. Pour out, Thy Healing Angels,Thy Heavenly Host upon me,And upon those that I love, Let me feel the beam of Thy Healing Angels upon me, The Light of your Healing Hands. I will let Thy Healing begin, Whatever way God grants it
Amen. Daniela. x
Aurora, if we could bring you back again for one more hour or day, we'd express all our unspoken love, we'd have countless things to say.
Aurora if we could bring you back again we'd say we treasured you and that your presence in our lives meant more than we ever knew.
Aurora if we could bring you back again to tell you what we should, you'd know how much we miss you now. And if we could we would. Lord give us courage without Aurora and to know that we will meet again in our Eternal life. xx
All our Love
Daniela, kevin. Luca, Ella.
I was in the same class as Aurora in clipstone and was devastated when i heard the news. I'm terribly sorry for your loss but just remember, she watching, and i know she wouldnt want us to think of her passing negativley. She brought happiness and love into our lives and for that, i will always thank her. She was a close friend of mine and i miss her dearly <3 R.I.P princess :)
Aurora was an amazing person and I was very close to her from nursery until we eventually grew apart, and I was very upset when I heard. It's not fair that such a thing could happen to such a kind family, and I respect you for starting this website. I hope that people are inspired by both your's and Aurora's braveness, and that you all live on to have long and happy lives
I used to be best freinds with Aurora but we stopped talking when we moved to middle school. I was really upset when i heard and i love what youve done for her. Miss you Aurora.
Dear Margherita, Francesco, Isabella and Chiara.
Everytime i read 'Aurora's Story' it makes me remember her wonderful personality! she was such a beautiful and lovely girl. And spending many years at school with her brought us very close!
I adored her very much, and it was extremely rare that you'd ever see a frown on her face, so rare i'd only seen her frown once in the years i'd known her and even that frown only lasted a split second!!
The day before her birthday Zoe, Fabienne and I are planning to visit Aurora's garden at Clipstone Brook to show our respects and lay some flowers to show we will be remembered forever.
4Aurora is an amazing way to remember Aurora and is great for helping others too!
sleep tight Aurora- we're all thinking of you sweetie,always and forever.
Love Chloe M xxxx
Although i didnt know aurora as long as some of the other clipstone girls, i knew her long enough to know she was a warm hearted, caring, girl. Her creativity and sense of understanding wouldve got her very far.
Aurora, if your reading this, i want you to know how much we all love and miss you. I hope your enjoying yourself up there! Sleep tight beautiful! Gone, but never forgotten!Happy birthday! We love you sweetheart! <3
Only The Best
A heart of gold stopped beating,
two shining eyes at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove,
He only takes the best.
God knows you had to leave us,
but you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day He took you home.
To some you are forgotten,
to others just part of the past,
but to us who loved and lost you,
the memory will always last.
Happy Birthday Aurora, our sweet beautiful Angel.
lots of love
Zia Daniela, Zio kevin ,Luca & Ella. xxxxxxxx

Eternal God, from whom every family in heaven and earth takes it's name, we remember today and every day our child whom you lent us to love is now taken from us.
Hold each one in peace today and for ever, as we offer you our memories of their unfinished lives, bring us at last to rejoice together in that light and love that have no end;
Through your own child who died and was raised to glory, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
