Thank you

My son, Alexander, received his lovequilt last week. He turned 3 on the 17th so it was perfect timing! He absolutely loves it and sleeps with it every night! He even refuses his duvet and insists he is covered only with his lovequilt!!! It looks amazing and has truly been made with love. We are very grateful to all those involved in making it and the fact it has been made by Stitchers across the world, makes it even more special. It's very touching to know that the Stitchers and Fundraisers care and provide such talented squares for our special children. Many thanks x

Biography

Alex wasn't breathing when he was born so needed medical assistance from birth! We had to spend a few days in hospital but once we got discharged, we thought our rocky start was over. At 4 weeks old, Alex's heel prick test results showed he had cystic fibrosis, a condition I had heard of but knew little about. It was a total shock. But even at a month old, Alex was such a bonny boy so instead of focusing on her this heartbreaking news, I focused on being blessed with a bundle of joy.

Alex is now 2 and has had a 2 week stay in hospital for IV antibiotics and takes daily medication and physiotherapy. He has proved to be a real trooper so inspires me to keep calm and carry on too! Nebulisers, inhalers, special dietary requirements and monthly appointments with consultants; physiotherapists; and dieticians, he takes in his stride.

A cosy quilt will be perfect for days at home when he is poorly and for inevitable hospital admissions as the familiarity will no doubt prove comforting as unfortunately, admissions are for at least two weeks at a time.
