Help bring a smile to a seriously ill child today

Scale Henry Lily Anaiah Smile

We are here for the UK’s most seriously ill children. Every day, we see more than 600 children from all around the UK. More than half of them live outside London. For some, we are their only hope.

  • Henry from Yorkshire was born with two holes in his heart. He came to GOSH when he was just five weeks old, for surgery on his heart and trachea.
  • Lily from Essex was treated for leukaemia. She faced complicated and urgent treatments during her time at GOSH. The hospital’s Play specialists were always close by to help her feel less scared.
  • Anaiah-Grace from Hertfordshire came to GOSH when she was just four months old. She needed an urgent heart transplant – and she and her mum stayed at the hospital for 18 months.

Thanks to research funded by our donors, we can find kinder treatments and cures for more children like Henry, Lily and Anaiah-Grace.

Support from our donors also means we can offer families accommodation close to the hospital – so they can be at their child’s bedside whenever they are needed.
