Together at Christmas – Isobel’s story

Twelve-year-old Isobel was born with Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic condition that affects her brain, eyes, hearing and breathing. Isobel spent her very first Christmas at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), while her brothers and sister stayed close by in charity-provided accommodation. This year, they’ll all be spending Christmas together at home.

From strength to strength: A Christmas at home for Ronan

Five-year-old Ronan has spent more time in hospital than most people do in a lifetime. After his mum, Natasha, went into labour three months prematurely, Ronan needed specialist life-saving surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), over 120 miles from his home. Thanks to charity funded parent accommodation, his parents could stay just across the road as doctors battled to save him.
