So a few months before Christmas I got a bit keyboard happy and thought I’ll do the marathon, things quickly escalated from there. So after many runs in this wonderful weather I needed motivation to keep on going. So with a tear in my eye and lump in my throat. I just reminded myself of the cheeky little chap Leo. “Darren and Trudi’s little lad”.  Who was born 13 weeks premature on 13/4/2014 weighing only 701g(1lb 5oz) with little hope of survival. Thanks to the wonderful staff at the Trevor Mann baby unit and the vital equipment including the Neonatal ambulance team, Leo beat all the odds. After a four month stay on the unit, Leo continues to thrive despite ongoing medical complexities, all of which would not have happened without the exceptional care he received in the first months of his life at the Trevor Mann baby unit. 

Myself and Lisa can confirm just how great the care is at the Trevor Mann baby unit having a short stay with Jake at 8 weeks old. 

So I feel this is a really worth while cause and very local to many in Sussex and the surrounding areas. 

TEAM LEO!! I feel I should also mention Darren and Trudi as they have been through so many ups and downs. And now  Leo is thriving and a true credit to you both.
