As I am sure more people are aware, Alder Hey is a Childrens Hospital based in Liverpool and is one of the UK’s most prominent childrens hospitals. They do amazing work treating over a quarter of a million children each year. Already specialists in Oncology and Muscular Dystrophy as well as spinal, heart and brain conditions. They are also the first UK Centre of Excellence for Childhood Lupus but they don’t want to stop there.
I wish we lived in a world where a service such as this wasn’t required, but since becoming a mum it’s made me realise even more how precious and fragile life is. We all live in fear that some terrible disease or illness will take our children away from us. When they do strike, thank goodness that there are places like Alder Hey where we can turn.
