Story

On 16 Nov 2018 I dropped Joey off at school completely well and looking forward to the day. Within 20 mins he had suffered a brain harmorrhage due to an AVM (arteriovenous malformation) ; likened to a childhood haemorrhagic stroke. He was stabalised in Whiston Childrens A&E then sent to Alder Hey Childrens Hospital where he stayed for 4 momths. We can’t thank them both enough for firstly saving Joeys life but for also providing the intense rehab he is now receiving.

We will be using this account to raise funds for Mac House, Whiston Childrens A&E and then phased fundraising for various departments within Alder Hey - Neurology, Physio, OT, Hydro and Soeech and Language.

First phase was for Mac House and AH charity. (£1000 raised)

Phase 2 is for Whison Pards A&E and AH Neuro team - Dr Jas at whiston and Dr Jon Ellenbogen (who was Joeys surgeon) literally saved our boy, we are eternally grateful! (around £3500 raised!)

Phase 3 has seen £1600 raised following a charoty tattoo day and donated to AH arts and misic therapies!

Phase 4 will have raffle which will raise money for ongoing treatment for Joey such as extra physio, sensory trearment, equipment etc

. Thank you for reading! x

Phase 5 raised £620 for The Childrens Trust - an amazing rehab centre in Surrey where Joey spent 2 months relearning motor akills which he’d lost.

Phase 6 is now raising money for Whiston Childrens A&E who were super speedy in checking an MRI which disgnosed Joeys stroke. Dr Jas and all the team were amazing with us for what was the longest morning ever!

    Thank you everyone for donating to phase 7 - this months fundraising is for Whiston Children’s A&E department who were amazing with Joey on the day this journey began....! Dr Jas and his team were so quick in their treatment and diagnosis of childhood stroke that enabled Joey to get to Alder Hey in a good time frame to undergo life saving brain surgery! Think STROKE think FAST! We did and they did and we have Joey here as a result ❤️💙❤️ Thank you all!!!!! xxxxx

    A wonderful place to raise money for. When our children are sick it’s the worst feeling in the world. Not sure what we would do without places like this.

Joey was 10 when he experienced a brain haemorrhage / stroke due to an AVM. He is learning to walk, talk and use his right side again. His determination is admirable to say the least and he smiles every single day! Thank you to Whiston & Alder Hey & The Children’s Trust 🌟
