With her moon boots on, there is no stopping Jemma Guy.
The seven-year-old fearlessly sprints across her living room floor, with family dog Dante eagerly in tow.
They reach the backyard and without hesitation, fly up the stairs leading to her grandparent's flat.
Described as resilient, happy, friendly, excitable, tough and fast, Jemma has always been a fighter according to parents Dom and Lisa, who have come close to losing their daughter on more than one occasion.
Born 27 weeks premature, Jemma has a rare chromosome deletion and clubfeet, which have been resistant to treatment.
She also has reduced facial muscle tone which has impacted her ability to swallow and eat.
With multiple long term care needs including speech therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and continence, Mr Guy said she had come a long way, but there were still challenges ahead.
"When Jemma was born, we were in Hobart for about 99 days," he explained.
"When we came back to Launceston, she was still in NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] for a fair while then.
"It was a terrifying and confusing time for us. I think we were just in a daze and going through the routine."
Jemma's most recent surgery was about four months ago - which is why she is now wearing moon boots - but she has had countless surgeries in her lifetime to manage her swallowing and bone development.
As Mr Guy explained, she's already had more x-rays than most people would have in a lifetime.
"It's ongoing really and we have probably lost count really, in regards to the hospital visits," he said.
"Still she is vibrant, outgoing. She doesn't ever want to stop."
"Even if she has sore legs she wouldn't want to miss a day of school," Mrs Guy added.
With a love for Leggo, all things craft and a special relationship with her "nanny and poppy", Mrs Guy said Jemma always found a way to make other people feel special.
"People know Jemma," she said.
"She always gives hugs to strangers. She meets them for the first time and runs up and gives them a hug.
"That's just her personality, very outgoing and friendly."
It is this confidence and resilience that makes Jemma a superhero in the eyes of the Guy family, and all who know her.
As she grows older, Mr and Mrs Guy said they just want their daughter to keep being the "happy little girl that she is".
