I was interviewed at Great Ormond Street Hospital yesterday to help promote world kidney day on 14th March.

I was born with kidney problems and had my first operation at Great Ormond Street when I was just 4months old.

I can’t wait for the children at Great Ormond Street now to receive these books to help them through the difficult journey to transplant I have experienced first hand.

Thank you for all the kind donations.

Found this lovely comment at the front of an old book earlier, and it felt very appropriate.

Please help me find this book for the children at Great Ormond Street waiting for a kidney transplant.

It is designed to be both informative and interactive so the children can feel more prepared for the difficult hurdles ahead.

Many thanks

Play specialists at Great Ormond Street can’t wait for the books to be given to the children on Eagle Ward so they can use them as a tool to explain the complicated process of having a kidney transplant to children of all ages.
