Day 21: Freddie’s going home for Christmas!

10-year-old Freddie, a big Liverpool Football Club fan, has been at Alder Hey for nine months after he was diagnosed with Wilms Tumour.
During that time, he has gone through chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery but recently had the all-clear from his scans!
His mum was told by Alder Hey that he had the all-clear on the phone, whilst watching Freddie in his school panto!
Above you can see him ringing his end-of-treatment bell. Enjoy Christmas at home, Freddie!

Day 17: Alder Hey Christmas Star – Ramesh Kutty

This is Harvey and Ramesh! Ramesh is one of our Consultant Cardiac Surgeons and has helped mend many hearts over the past year. One patient he has helped along the way is Harvey, who has now even become an Alder Hey Children’s Charity ambassador!
Harvey had two ASD holes in his heart, which required a 7.5-hour open heart operation by Ramesh and his team to repair. Since his operation, Harvey has gone on to raise over £11,000 for our charity.
Here is Harvey ‘awarding’ Ramesh with a Christmas Star award!
