Little Heroes – Oliver

Seven-year-old Oliver woke up one morning last year with a swollen knee which gradually got worse. His mum Michelle, who herself has rheumatoid arthritis, recognised some of his symptoms – but never imagined her son would be diagnosed with a rare form of juvenile arthritis.

Little Heroes – Noah

“I didn’t know there was a service where Noah could get support to manage his anxiety before surgery. Noah wanted to know everything that was going to happen and he was able to ask all of the questions he had. Afterwards, he felt much more in control. He really needed that.” 

Little Hero – Romeo

Romeo became a patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) when he was just two hours old, after being born with a very rare and complex heart condition. With difficult decisions ahead, Romeo's mum, Donna, shares how GOSH's Palliative Care team have supported their family.
