Teagan Martin’s first day at Canterbury Secondary School

13 September 2019

Teagan Martin's first day at Canterbury Secondary School

Born 15 weeks premature and weighing as much as a box of cereal Teagan was only supposed to have 24 hours to live. Fast forward 11 years later and Teagan's parents are sending her off to her first day of secondary school in Canterbury. It is a truly inspiring story which have left her parents with nothing but pride and admiration for their daughter who despite her struggles with NF continues to defy the odds and uplift those around her on a daily basis

"She’s done so well to get this far - she wasn’t meant to be here but she is. We’re well chuffed."

– Teagan's Father Ian
