As most of you will know on the 10th September 2018 our dad was rushed in to the critical care unit at The Royal Stoke university hospital with a life threatening illness . The doctors acted fast that night and made the decision to intubate him in order to save his life of which we are eternally grateful  . 

Whilst dad was in a coma we spent a lot of time chatting to the wonderful nurses at dads bedside and we were surprised to learn how much all the vital equipment costs . Therefore we would like to raise as much funds as we can towards intensive care research and to help towards saving other lives . 

After 2 weeks in intensive care dad went on to a ward where he was to spend a further three and a half months . We are happy to say we got him home just in time for Christmas . 

Without that important care he received in those first 2 weeks dad may not have been here now to celebrate this birthday on the 19th february .We can never thank them enough . 

Please donate as much or as little as you can or just help by sharing the page . Every little helps xxx
