Dear Luke,
We had a wonderful time when we came to stay with you, we seemed to fit so much in to our holiday!

The boys really enjoyed our visit to Kents Cavern and were made really welcome. As Matthew is learning about Victorians at school we then had a visit to Bygones Museum and again we were made to feel very welcome. After that it was time to go to Angels Tea Rooms for a lovely cream tea that everyone thoroughly enjoyed!! Then in the evening the boy’s loved the “Laughter Show” at Babbacombe Theatre.

We had a fantastic day at Woodlands theme park and we had great fun at Paignton Zoo, another lovely day was spent at Crealy Adventure park and the boys really enjoyed the bowling.

The meals at the hotel were delicious, the staff very friendly and the company was lovely!!

To top the holiday off the boys even found Whally at the babbacombe Model Village.

It was lovely to see the boys having such a lovely time and it was so relaxing for all the family.

It is difficult to put into words what the children have to endure and for the families to have to watch them struggle on through the treatment is almost unbearable.

Our nightmare started six years ago when our son was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. This had crushed his spinal cord and spread to his tummy. He had to not only endure the pain from an agonising illness, but also agonising surgeries (three in total, adding up to 24 hours) and then complications with his central lines, where a total of five were inserted through his treatment and several cycles of intensive chemotherapy.

Then came his agonising rehabilitation where he amazed us by learning to walk again and his nervous system re-wired itself to allow this!!!

I think it is fair to say that these children are an inspiration!!

The THHN allows the families to escape for a little while and it gives the families something to look forward to. It is fantastic what you are doing and the amount of work you are putting into this project is a credit to you, your colleagues, family and friends.

Once again thank you for your kindness and it was lovely to meet you.

Jane & Rob Carson
