Children’s Health Foundation - Christmas Wishes

For the Children’s Health Foundation, Christmas is a special time of year. Children suddenly transform into little angels – minding their p’s and q’s, finishing their dinner and going to bed on time. However, once December 25th passes, it’s back to pulling crackers and hair, ripping wrapping paper and wallpaper and just generally being cheeky little elves. We find that a lot of parents whose children spend some time in Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly cherish these little moments of mischief. 

 

There’s something so special about seeing a child who has been through so much, with a beaming, mischievous grin stretching from ear to ear. That was the experience of Izzy’s parents, Emma and Dan. Izzy was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at six weeks old. Izzy’s mum Emma has told us of the incredible support from all the staff in Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin. “Honestly, I was so thankful to be at Crumlin during this period. As soon as they told us Izzy’s diagnosis, Prof. Cox reassured us that medical advances meant that she had a good chance of managing her illness. Crumlin became like a second home during that time. When we needed to be by Izzy’s side, there was a fold-out bed for us, as well as a special kitchen just for parents.”
