The Devastation of Childhood Serious Illness ↓
Childhood illnesses turn a family’s world upside down, taking away the peaceful childhood that the child deserves as they grow up. It takes a child away from the things they enjoy, and thrusts them into a sterile world of hospitals and treatment. At Barretstown, our mission is to reverse this; to give them a place where they can smile, laugh & play, away from the struggles of their illness. Our programmes give them back hope. One child and his family who have experienced this is Harry. Read on to see how Barretstown helped him and his family to heal.
