Alice has a rare skin condition, xeroderma pigmentosa, which means she is highly prone to skin cancer and cannot go out without cream and protective clothing all over her body. She usually preferred to stay indoors; a shame for such a lively little girl.
Jack Rae, one of the volunteers at Remap Carlisle made her a toy car she could safely use outside by fitting it with a screen which acts as an ultraviolet filter. Alice loved it so much she asked Jack to make her another to use at school at playtime.
Alice’s parents are thrilled that she can enjoy the fresh air and feel Remap’s work has made life better for the whole family.
