Young siblings climb Snowdon
How can you say thank you to the team who so expertly cared for you and your sister while you were ill? Climb Snowdon!
This is 9-year-old Seth and his sister, 8-year-old Martha. Today, along with dad Andrew, they’ll be taking on the challenge of a lifetime and climbing one of the UK’s highest peaks. And it’s all because of one special place: Bristol Children’s Hospital. This family of fundraisers know only too well the life-changing work of the hospital after both Seth and younger sister Eliza required its expert care.
In 2015 and with his condition worsening rapidly, Seth was transferred to Bristol Children’s Hospital with a severe case of pneumonia. Only a year later, sister Eliza was given the devastating news that she had a Wilms’ tumour, a rare form of cancer. Wilms’ tumour is a type of kidney cancer in children which primarily affects children under the age of five.
Little Eliza endured a three-hour operation to remove her tumour and bravely fought through eight months of chemotherapy. The amazing team at Bristol Children’s Hospital and its state-of-the-art equipment enabled these two sick children to recover and with dad Andrew being so impressed by the caring environment the hospital provided for them in their time of need, he knew they needed to say thank you somehow.
Fast forward to 2019, and Seth, Martha and Andrew are set to scale Snowdon TODAY and better yet, they’ll be wearing their Wrong Trousers! We hope you’ll join us in wishing this terrific trio mountains of luck! We’re so impressed by their extraordinary efforts to say thank you. Why not help them on their way and donate today.
