As a baby Jack was unable to feed and was crying constantly. At four years of age he was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease which has left him with brain damage.

“Francis House have stepped in when we really need them – if we’re at a point where we’re desperate for a break they’ve really helped us feel like a family again,” says mum Tina. 

"It's somewhere where you can come and remember what it's like to be a mum or a dad or a parent, rather than a nurse doing medical interventions.

“In the future we know that we’re not going to have Jack around with us, and we know that Francis House are going to be there for us when that time comes.”
