Story

11th April 2017 our son Chester Fisher underwent his abdominal repair aged 18 months. The operation proved a success and although he’s a patch holding his stomach muscles at a width of 14cm he’s not looked back. He has no fear and continually challenges himself and does everything his older brother participates him. He’s forever jumping around climbing over obstacles. We know all Exomphalos and Gastroschisis cases are unique and vary in severity and we too found out at the 20 week scan and spent 2.5 years living with uncertainty and constant worry. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we are testimony to this and recognise how lucky we are.

Our success story has been down to ward L42 Children's General Surgical Ward and the Neonates/Surgical Newborns at the Leeds Children's hospital. It's well documented in the media and the problems with in the NHS and never did this effect the support and care we received during our time at Leeds. Surgeons, Nurses and even the cleaners were compassionate, caring, attentive, professional and above all highly skilled and every child treated equally regardless of the severity of each case! This is what makes the NHS great and a world class service.

What they need is our support and and in the case of these two wards is to modernise the very dated facilities which can resolve potential infections to susceptible poorly children.

We at Fishtank would like to try and raise £100 per team member and hopefully every little counts in helping the wards long term ambitions

So please help and donate what ever you can to try reach this goal
