My story

[p]In 2016, when my little boy George was just 3 days old, he was rushed to NICU in Leeds General Infirmary with a massive gastrointestinal bleed. Whilst George was in NICU at LGI, we wanted to be as close to him as possible. This was made possible through the Sick Children's Trust.[/p][p]The Sick Children's Trust provide free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation for families with sick children in hospital. For us, this was in their Leeds 'Home from Home', Eckersley House. Staying at Eckersley House whilst George was in NICU was a massive relief, we were able to stay opposite the hospital doors, with a direct line to the ward George was on. All of a sudden we did not need to worry about travelling between home in Wakefield and George in Leeds. The support we received from The Sick Children's Trust enabled us to be there for George 24/7 whilst he was in NICU. It also allowed us to have a space off the ward where we could cook, eat, sleep and wash without having to go home.[/p][p]Today, George is a lively and heathy nearly 3 year old, and you would not know the trauma we had gone through in the first days after he was born (except for maybe some of my grey hairs!), but the support at Eckersley House has stayed with me since.[/p][p]I am running the 2019 Great North Run to pay back this kindness and support, and hopefully to ensure that other families are able to continue to receive help and support from The Sick Children's Trust when their children are unwell.[/p][p]Those of you who know me will be aware that I am built more for comfort than speed, so this will be a great challenge for me over the next 6 months, so dig deep and be generous![/p]
