In April 2023 my friend's little boy, Nuno, who was 8 month old at the time, was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with a form of Leukemia called AML. The treatment involved several months of staying in hospital, with a rare day or week at home between chemotherapy cycles. They were separated as a family and Nuno spent more time in his hospital room than anywhere else. It was a pretty tough year but my friend and her family were just incredible throughout. Nuno's strength is unbeatable, and he's a true hero.

The highlight of Nuno’s week was a visit from Louise, the music therapist from George’s Rockstars. 

George's Rockstars is a charity who help children all over the south coast and in all types of hospital settings. Their mission is to make children in hospitals smile through the power of music therapy. You might wonder if music therapy is that important and my friend admits that when they first arrived in hospital she didn't see how or what could be done by music therapy for a small baby fighting for their life. She quickly understood that hospitals are very scary places for children, and music is a wonderful distraction as  well as a cherished moment of normality. 

Not only did Louise bring joy to Nuno but also to the whole family and something positive to focus on. It helped them know what day of the week it was as they rolled through the endless days, weeks and months in hospital. The hour of music therapy was like a trip to a music class or baby group a total treasure! 
 
So, as a thank you to George’s Rockstars and all the musical love and happiness Louise gave Nuno, we will be abseiling down the Spinnaker tower. I am absolutely terrified and can't think of anything I'd rather not do!! I really hope my legs will work and that I won't need to be airlifted off the tower! Photos will be available if so 🤣

Please donate what you can to this amazing cause and wish us luck for the 11th May 2024.. it will be needed! BIG LOVE TO NUNO!
