Our supporters Donna and Ian have chosen to leave a gift in their Will for our Neonatal unit following the time they spent on the unit with their son Cameron before he passed.
Here is Ian and Donna's story
“My wife Donna and I were parents of Cameron, a baby boy delivered at 27 week's gestation who was cared for by the team on the Neo Natal unit at the hospital. Cameron spent 3 months in nursery 7 where the Consultants, Doctors, amazing Nurses and support staff looked after him in the most fantastic, caring, dignified way.
Our boy never came home with us but the staff at the hospital made the time we did have with him no less special than any other parents with a new baby, all be it in the most difficult of circumstances some days.
The hospital also gave support to us, not just emotionally but would encourage us to have a break away from his bed side as we were also living at the hospital for the duration of his stay because we are from Thornton - Cleveleys. We had coffee afternoons on the unit just for parents who were in the same situation as us, we met other parents in our nursery and would go for walks together or out to have a bite to eat with the nurses re assuring us that it was good for us to do that and re charge our batteries.
Our time spent at the Liverpool women's hospital was a time that is filled with lots of different emotions but it is time that we will never forget and was made easier by the amazing staff that cared for Cameron and for us.
I wanted to leave a gift in my will as a way of saying a big thank you, we will never forget the care given to our special little boy from a special team”
