Hi, this is Jack’s Mum & Dad. We just wanted to add a wee note to explain Jack’s idea.
Over the past few years, starting age 3 months, Jack’s youngest brother Noah has been admitted to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children (in Edinburgh, Scotland) on 20+ separate occasions. Each time staying for at least one day and sometimes up to a week.
Noah is 12½ now but requires immediate medical attention and admittance to the hospital, sometimes he is admitted to the HDU (High Dependency Unit) when his condition is very bad.
(This is of course in addition to Jack, Noah and his other brother Toby requiring the care and attention of the Sick Kids for their own less serious mishaps.)
This website, this idea, this fundraising, is Jack’s way of saying thank you.
Jack came up with this idea entirely on his own, unprompted by us. He:
- created and drew the logo
- designed the first version of the website (which in turn was used as inspiration for the second version of the website)
- invented the name
- wrote all of the original words
- picked the colours
- chose the charity
- wrote and sang the theme tune
Thank you for visiting Jack’s website and we hope you will help Jack and many others by supporting this very worthwhile cause — Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity (previously The Sick Kids Friends Foundation).
Rose & Ed Henderson (Mum & Dad)
