“It’s difficult, as a parent you’re meant to do everything right by your child, but when you have a child like Lilly-Anne who needs so much medical help, I feel my role as a parent is taken away. I’m like someone medical to her, but when I come to Christopher’s I can be a mum. I can get involved and play and not have to worry about the medical side of things, just feel like a normal family and enjoy each other’s company.” - Mum KatieRead Lily-Anne's story
