Why should you take on the firewalk for Helen & Douglas House?
Max is 11 years old and lives in Swindon with his Mum and Dad and sister Eva. Max has been coming to Helen & Douglas House for 5 years for respite care because he has end-stage renal failure and a mitochondrial disorder. Read Max’s story.
Claire Max’s Mum said ‘If we didn’t have Helen & Douglas House our lives would be much tougher and we wouldn’t have a rest. When we stay there we feel relieved because we know life will get a bit easier. We need these days to recharge to ensure we can give Max all the care he needs.’
