My Story

On the 13th September 2012 our son Liam was rushed to A&E after suffering a seizure. He was transferred to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and on arrival was admitted to the ICU where his condition was critical. He was suffering from a condition called HUS (Hemolytic-uremic syndrome) and his kidneys had stopped working. His condition worsened and he required dialysis and plasma exchange, a procedure that can only be carried out at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital. It was nine days before the first signs that he was responding to treatment. On the 23rd of September he was removed from the ventilator and left intensive care the next day. After 3 weeks of treatment we were allowed to take our son home.
Without this intensive care Liam would have died. In recognition of the care Liam received and to help ensure that this level of care continues to be available to others who need it I am trying to raise some money towards the ICU and Renal care units in Temple Street. I will be doing a Half Ironman distance Triathlon – 1900m swim, 96km cycle and 21km run.
There is no minimum contribution – you can donate any sum you feel appropriate or that you can afford. Every single euro will help seriously ill children and I can only wish that you will never have the need to avail of the excellent care that was given to our son Liam.

Thank You
