Story

My eldest daughter is now a healthy, happy 7 year old but in December 2008 she became very ill, very quickly. She had a rash and was feelling sick so we took her to the NHS walk in centre in Wavertree. We just presumed it was measles or something similar, nothing too serious. However, after a thorough inspection by the vigilant staff they sent us up to Alder  Hey - where they immediately began treating her for Meningococcal Septicaemia (Meningitis). She remained very ill for four days but thankfully made a full recovery and was discharged just in time for Christmas. This was best present we ever had. If it wasn't for the expert NHS staff, I'm not sure she would have made it.

So, I'm going to run the Santa Dash to raise some money for Alder Hey. A small way to show endless thanks to the staff that gave me my daughter back.

So please give what you can afford, no matter how little. Go on, donate now. Thank You!
