My story

<p>To raise more than &pound;50 million every year to keep the hospital at the forefront of paediatric medicine is a huge task, however by doing so, the hospital can remain at the forefront of international paediatric medicine.&nbsp; The funding will contribute to the rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital, deliver the most up-to-date equipment, supporting research into, and the development of, breakthrough treatments; and provide accommodation and other support services for children and their families.&nbsp; The Hospital has the broadest range of dedicated healthcare specialists under one roof; specialists who have treated Anthony. I will be walking the Great Ormond Street Children&rsquo;s Hospital mile with Anthony Bennett.&nbsp; Anthony had just returned from a school trip to Disneyland Paris when he collapsed and was rushed to Great Ormond Street Hospital. When he woke, he didn't know where he was. Thankfully, his mother was standing over him - she told him he was in hospital with pneumonia before he lost consciousness again. Anthony had three other infections too, and over the seven weeks he spent in the hospital, his heart stopped a terrifying twelve times. Fortunately, the hospital had adopted the revolutionary new ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation) machine. Similar to a bypass machine, ECMO acts as a child's artificial heart and lungs if theirs are failing while they wait for a transplant or further treatment. This new technology kept Anthony alive through his ordeal.&nbsp; Without funding, this equipment and this support would not have been available.&nbsp; Anthony and I hope you will donate to ensure this outstanding support can continue.</p> <p>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.</p>
