For the last 7 years I have felt so alone in trying to care for my child. The pressure of the responsibility to care for him and make the right decisions has weighed me down to the point I felt I was on my knees. I went to see Cheryl from Family First which was a turning point not only for me but for my whole family. She was so understanding and enthusiastic to help, I literally felt like she had taken my hand and lifted me off my knees. She has been able to help me along with support from the Grace Crocker Foundation, I have been helped to regain control of our lives.
The comfort in the knowledge that there are people and organisations who can help my son and family is amazing. The care my son receives in the UK hospitals is outstanding, but we felt abandoned in Jersey. I cannot thank the Grace Crocker Foundation and Family First enough for their help and support.
