My page:

Hi, thank you so much for visiting my page. I'm abseiling down the side of St Thomas' Hospital in May to help my wonderful children with transplants compete in this year's transplant games. I've just realised I have now publicly said I'm ABSEILING down the side of a VERY TALL HOSPITAL in just 1 months time!! This is going to be a serious challenge for me, just thinking about it makes my heart beat quite a bit faster than it should. Every time I walk toward the hospital it appears to get taller!!

I'm very privileged to be the Advanced Nurse Practitioner for Children's Transplantation at Evelina London Children's Hospital. The children I care for will be patients for life, never getting fully away from their transplant team! On a daily basis I share the roller coaster of transplantation with the children and their families.

I'm abseiling to help get our Evelina London VIPs to this year's British Transplant Games. The Transplant Games are a highlight of our year! Getting fit after transplant surgery is really important and the Games allow our children to compete in both fun & serious sport. The Games allow us to provide support for the children, their siblings & parents, a vital component to help our children reach their potential in life!

Our Team are called the Evelina London VIPs as I think they are very important people, patients and penguins (our transplant clinic is in the penguin zone of our hospital)

The money you donate will be going to the Paediatric Transplant Fund (CD350) within Guy's & St Thomas' Charity.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
