Charity Registration No. 517919
Julie's daughter, Holly, has Retts Syndrome, a rare condition that affects the development of the brain. It causes severe physical and mental disability that begins in early childhood. "My family and I were invited to Martin House and it was a life-changing point for us. We had struggled with caring for Holly with no respite and without a full night's sleep. Our experience as a family going to the hospice has been extraordinary. They care for us as a family and Holly’s brother and sisters have met other children in similar situations."
