Arron was born at only 25 weeks of pregnancy and spent the first four months of his life on the neonatal intensive care unit. He then moved to Island ward where, other than a short three week stay at home, he spent the rest of his first year of life. Being in hospital and the added restrictions necessary to keep everyone safe from COVID meant that his mum couldn’t have the 1st birthday celebrations that most families enjoy. But, thanks to your support of our Sparkle Fund, we were able to mark the important day in little ways with cake, presents and decorations. One of Arron’s many fans at the hospital, Dr Wahid, also learnt the words to Happy Birthday in welsh to mark the occasion.
