As you would expect, we are doing all we can as a charity to continue funding medical research for sick and vulnerable babies and children, in the face of the?rapidly-unfolding?coronavirus threat.?
Already?in the UK, there are hundreds of thousands of sick and disabled babies, children and young people, affected by a range of?devastating?physical and mental conditions.??
Whilst the?world is?turned upside down by coronavirus,?these?children and families?still?need our help?- now and always?- to develop treatments, vaccinations and cures?that could save lives. Research can bring hope to these families.?
As a charity that receives no government funding, our ability to fund this vital research relies entirely on voluntary support. And much of our income comes from events that people take part in. With so many?of these?events?now having to be cancelled,?we know we have a big gap to fill, urgently.? And?so?we need your help now more than ever.?
A research project?can?cost around ?220,000.?Can you help us now and ensure we continue to fund vital research for sick babies and children?
Children like?Ella who was born six weeks early leaving her vulnerable to infection. Ella fell ill with what at first seemed to be a simple cold, but soon turned into a fight for life. She was rushed to hospital with a severe case of bronchiolitis, a potentially?life threatening?lung infection.?
We are funding research searching for effective treatments to fight this infection, giving hope to families like Ella's.?
Please give what you can now. Any gift large or small will help us get closer to this important target.??
