The Hill Family attended the 2016 Inner Wheel Australia Conference, held in October in Sydney. Gloria Hill spoke about her son Sean, who was born with a rare genetic disease that severely compromised his immune system and caused him to be ill for much of his young life. Thanks to a life-saving transplant of 30ml of cord blood four years ago, Sean is now a healthy and thriving little boy.
