Story

We started this fundraising page in memory of our son, Oliver. He died as a result of an invasive strep A throat infection. He had been in hospital on anitbiotics and appeared to be on the mend. But the infection had caused tissue damage behind his tonsil and soft palette, which spread, rupturing a major blood vessel in his throat, in turn leading to catastrophic blood loss. The hospital team did all they could to save him, but devastatingly he passed away. He was just 15 days from reaching his 3rd birthday.

The fantastic effort by all of the doctors, surgeons and nursing staff is the reason we have decided to raise some money for the hospital, in the hope that it may one day help save another childs life.
Oliver was a truly happy boy with the most infectious smile. He was such a caring and loving boy, who was so excitied at the prospect of becoming a big brother in the New Year. We knew he loved us and he knew we loved him; a day didn't go by without us telling each other ' love you all the world'. We know Ollie is in a happy and peaceful place, and are committed to making sure we remain happy and positive as it is all he knew and would have wanted.
