Story

Piers and I will be cycling the Brighton Marathon in April to raise money for Rockinghorse children's charity. This year all funds raised will be used to help Dr Alice Emond , a Clinical Psychologist at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton. 


The Rockinghorse Clinical Psychologist role was established following a detailed consultation with the oncology medical team at the Alex. They felt there was a real need for the role in order to support children and their families, who are facing extensive treatment for cancer.


Dr Alice Emond is specially trained to help children of all ages (from 0-19) with their mental health and wellbeing. Her role is extremely important in supporting these young patients and their families to cope with the physical health condition and treatment. Through this service, young patients and their families are also better prepared for upcoming surgeries and other forms of treatment.


As most of you know Piers and I have had extensive experience of what  it is like to be in hospital for a significant amount of time with a sick child. But I cannot imagine how much harder that would have been if Amber Lily had been older and having to manage her mental health as well as our own. Mental health is a vital ingredient in helping these young children to get better .
