Update: 13th April: Baby Jake continues on his road to recovery and will soon be discharged from his long hospital stay to go home for the first time since being born. We are all overjoyed at the amazing progress this wonderful baby has made, a truly brave little baby.
MANY MANY Thanks indeed to you all

Please see bottom of page for updates on baby Jake's progress
Our nephew was born on 23rd Feb 14, with heart/lung problems in Worthing. Transferred to Trevor Mann Unit where he was too sick to stay, so transported up to London. He is a true fighter and miracle baby who is defying all the odds with his truly amazing survival. During his first heart surgery he suffered a cardiac arrest and his parents were told to expect the worst. After eleven hours, this brave little man was taken to PICU very poorly but fighting on. To date, he is going to be in London for at least the next four months with further heart surgeries. Although staying in charity accomodation, the cost of travel and living for the parents is extortionate and an added stress. Dad, Lee is self-employed and so whilst staying with baby Jake he doesnt earn, but rent/bills still have to be paid. It is imperative that Mum and Dad are able to stay with their poorly baby during this time as his condition changes daily, but they need funds to be able to.
Hence this fundraising page we have set up for this special little family to be together during this traumatic time.
Thank-you for reading this and for any donation that you are able to give. We are really appreciative of your generosity and help.
