Jenson is now a healthy, happy little boy. He regularly goes back to Great Ormond Street for check ups. Every time we walk into the reception, we realise how lucky we are to have such an amazing facility to help care for Jenson.
And that’s what drives us forward to fundraise, anyway we can, for Great Ormond Street. Not just because of what they did for Jenson, but for other parents who will have to go through our experience – it was terrifying and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. Thankfully Great Ormond Street was there for us, and we want to make sure it is for others. Everyone who works there is simply amazing. They welcome you in, like it’s their own home. They’re together as a team. We’ve also seen dark days there for others, and the staff come together to help the parents. They’re strong.
It is here we want to mention Louis again, who sadly is no longer with us. We saw how this had an affect on the staff. We think of Alana often, and one of the areas we’re fundraising for is the parent’s accommodation at the hospital, as well as other areas.
As we walk in and out of there every time we go – there’s so much we want to say. The main thing is thank you to all at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
We support Great Ormond Street by doing toy collections and fundraise with events, such as the annual Gosh Dinner. You can donate at anytime.
