Meet Hago...

 

My name is Nina, and I am mum to Hago. Hago was born 26 weeks premature. He did so well, and was discharged home from the Women's Hospital within 3 months. His breathing got noisier by the day, and he constantly seemed out of breath, so I took him to Alder Hey Hospital. Scan's were taken and they found that he was breathing through only 25% of his airways, as 75% was blocked by scars from the ventilator that saved his life at birth. We were told that in order for him to live, he needed to have a tracheostomy put in. He needs 24 hour care and I have no one to give me a little break to go out, or to go to the shops.

Zoë's Place has been our life saver. Hago loves the place and when I leave him there, I feel at peace because of the care he recieves. I see new developments in him every time he comes back from Zoë's Place. It also gives me the respite I need to do normal things, like have a bath, regain my strenth and also to spend time with Hago's older sister Sally. The benefit of Zoë's Place is enormous to both me and my child.

I want to say thank you very much to all the workers and supporters of Zoë's Place. I don't know what we would have done without them, and I cannot find the words to thankt them enough. God bless you all for your love, care and generosity.
