Story

Hi Thanks so much for visiting my page,

As most of you probably know our beautiful baby girl Phoebe recently underwent a life saving operation at Alderhey Childrens hospital. On the 19th March at just 3 weeks old Phoebe was rushed from Bolton Hospital to Alderhey, she was unable to breath for herself and had been diagnosed as having a congenital heart defect known as ALCAPA- her coronry artery was attatched to her pulmonary artery meaning that her heart was pumping de oxygenated blood to her lungs- we were told her condition was life threatening and that surgery would be needed to save her life. Needless to say we were terrified.........

On arrival at Alderhey Phoebe was stable ane myself and Carl where shown to 'Mac House'- an amazing hotel like building where families can stay whilst their child is in hospital. Had this facility not been available we would have been sleeping on chairs at Phoebes bedside. Mac house allows families to be 2 minuites away from their sick child giving a little peace of mind at such a horrendous time, it alo means that your other children have somewhere to stay and play so you dont have the added feelings of being torn between your sick and healthy children. I truly could go on forever about how amazing Mac house is but i wont....

I will however ask you to donate genrously to allow the building to keep providing a home from home for families of sick children.

Phobe is home now and is geting stronger each day, thankyou all gor your support xxx
