My story

[p]On 15th March 2018 my nephew Conor was born weighing a healthy 8lb 6 ounces. Being the first grandchild, it led to a lot of excitement in our family! Three days later, Mammy and baby readied themselves to leave hospital and the final checks were carried out. It was then that nurses realised Conor had lost a lot more weight than is usually expected. He was sent for tests where it was discovered that he had TOF/OA. Conor was then transferred to Temple Street Children’s Hospital where he underwent repair surgery to join the oesophagus to the stomach. After 19 days Conor was finally allowed home. [/p][p]Over the following weeks and months my sister Sharon found herself facing a lot of unanswered questions; What should he be eating? Should he be doing this? Is this normal? That was until she discovered tofs! Tofs has been a huge support in answering these questions and alleviating many stresses and worries. The opportunity to connect with others with shared experiences has been extremely informative and reassuring. [/p][p]Knowing how much this charity has helped my sister, I jumped at the chance to run in the Great North Run for tofs. Coming from Ireland, where there is no such charity or organisation, I can't wait to line up with other tof runners and hear their stories![/p][p][br][/p]
