When I was 4, I got the
best present I could ever wish for, my little baby brother James.
Like me, he was born premature, but he became ill and ended up in a
coma at Alder Hey Children's Hospital. They saved his life and gave
me back my my new best friend. James is now 6, so to say thank you,
and to try to help other children, I am running a mile for every
month I have had my brother. That's 75 miles and counting. It's
going to take me a while!
I'll be posting my videos here for you to see how I'm getting
along. I hope you can support me.
I want to raise enough money to buy new equipment for Alder Hey to
help save other children's lives, so more children can grow up
together with their brothers and sisters.
HOW THE MONEY I RAISE WILL HELP
I'm raising money for Alder Hey Children's Charity to say thank you
for saving my brother James' life, and for giving me the brother I
always dreamed of. I want to raise enough money to buy equipment to
help save other children's lives.
If I can raise £5,000 I can buy a heated care cot. Premature babies
can't regulate their own temperature, so this will help Alder Hey
care for more premature babies like me and James
If I can raise £8,000 I can buy a special intensive care incubator,
to help premature babies who are born poorly, like James
If I can raise £10,000 I can buy state of the art equipment which
recycles the blood children lose in surgery, reducing the risk of
infection and reducing reliance on blood banks, especially for rare
If I can raise £25,000 I could buy a machine which finds veins in
children, making it easier and less painful for children to have
their blood taken
