We would like to thank and give something back to the amazing staff at the Evelina London PICU ward, for the exceptional care our precious daughter Molly received, after being admitted and diagnosed with Paediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome temporarily associated with COVID-19. (PIMS-TS) 

Most children are asymptomatic or exhibit mild symptoms from COVID-19 infection. However, recently a small number of children have been identified who develop a significant systemic inflammatory response. Inflammation is a normal response of the body’s immune system to fight infection. But sometimes the immune system can go into overdrive and begin to attack the body. If this happens, it is important that children receive urgent medical attention.

I just remember it started with my head hurting like someone was hitting it with a brick. I felt so sick! We went to the hospital and I was admitted to the children's ward, where I continued to get worse over the next nine days, even though the doctors and nurses were doing everything to help me. I was very frightened and just wanted to be better and at home with my family. Then my chest started hurting so much I couldn't breath. I thought I was going to die . That's when the Evelina PICU recovery team arrived and started saving my life.

I was rushed to the Evelin in London where the PICU team diagnosed and treated me for PIMS-TS    

For 15 years my Dad has been growing his dread locks and I have convinced him to cut them off to raise money for the Evelina London's PICU ward charity🤭😍

They saved my life and continue to help and save many other children, so this is our opportunity to give something back.

We are eternally grateful to all the courageous NHS staff who continue to put their lives on the line daily to help others.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you. 👏👏👏💖💖💖
