I’m raising money for Alder Hey Children’s Charity to say thank you for saving my brother James’ life, and for giving me the brother I always dreamed of. I want to raise enough money to buy equipment to help save other children’s lives.
If I can raise £5,000, I can buy a heated care cot. Premature babies can’t regulate their own temperature, so this will help Alder Hey care for more premature babies like James and me
If I can raise £8,000, I can buy a special intensive care incubator, to help premature babies who are born poorly, like James
If I can raise £10,000, I can buy state-of-the-art equipment which recycles the blood children lose in surgery, reducing the risk of infection and reducing reliance on blood banks, especially for rare blood types
If I can raise £25,000, I could buy a machine which finds veins in children, making it easier and less painful for children to have their blood taken
