Meet Jessy

Jessica from London was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was two years old. Jessica’s mum Annabel tells us about the life-saving treatment Jessica received at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

“When our local hospital told us that there was no treatment for Jessica’s brain tumour, my family was plummeted to hell. This was the hardest time of my life. We were taken to GOSH the next day by ambulance and within three days Jessy underwent an eight-hour operation to remove the tumour.

The care Jessy received was unbelievable – every person we met at GOSH was so caring and attentive. Jessy was very ill post-surgery and we spent a month on the ward. Although she couldn’t walk, talk, or swallow after her operation, she is now fully recovered and requires no further treatment.

GOSH made all my dreams come true and I met the most amazing people, that’s why I am helping to raise funds by taking part in The Woburn Abbey Triathlon at tri for life.”
