Leona Lewis meets menagitis victim

A SCHOOLGIRL who needed a heart transplant after a horror illness celebrated her miraculous recovery by meeting a pop star.

Eleanor Taylor met Leona Lewis at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, where the singer was rehearsing for an outdoor concert.

The 10-year-old and her family were driven from their Pound Hill home in a limousine to meet the X-Factor winner, courtesy of the Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity.

Her mum Diane said: “She was so thrilled she didn’t want the day to end.

“Leone Lewis is such a lovely lady.

“She gave Eleanor lots of hugs and kisses and really took the time to talk to her.”

Eleanor is now looking forward to starting secondary school in September.

Diane added: “Eleanor has gone through so much in the last two years and missed her friends, school, swimming, family and home comforts.

“She’s now on the road to recovery.

“She deserves so much happiness and I just know this will bring that beautiful smile she has back into our lives.”

Eleanor, who met Leona on June 6, needed five open heart surgeries to repair damage done by meningitis.

During one operation her heart failed and in October The News reported on the transplant which saved her life.
