Child Interests

Blue, red, stars.
Trains, motorbikes, postman pat, tellytubbies, in the night garden. Darts.


Alfie was a happy care free baby, until one Sunday when he was 8 months old. He had his first seizure, resulting in respiratory arrest. Thankfully he recovered. We were told it was probably a one off. Unfortunately the seizures carried on each week.

After months of battling, he finally got diagnosed with Dravet syndrome.

Alfie's life is very hard, but he never stops smiling. Hes such a little star.

His seizures will never be controlled, but we take one day at a time, and appreciate every day we have with him.
