    Our 2018 patient design

    At Christmas, time spent with the people you love is precious. For the children at Great Ormond Street Hospital who are too ill to go home this Christmas, that time feels even more precious. In December 2015, at only 17 months old, Ben came down with what seemed to be a cold. But after a few days, it became clear he wasn't his usual self. He quickly became very ill. He was unresponsive and couldn't wake up. And when he was taken to the local hospital he had a seizure. The doctor called GOSH for advice and then GOSH sent an ambulance to collect him. After two hours in intensive care the doctors told him mum Viki that Ben had meningitis. When Ben first woke up from an induced coma, the meningitis infection had left him blind, deaf and with uncontrolled limb movements. Viki spent Christmas on GOSH's neurology ward as the medical team fought to control the infection.

    Now age four, Ben's sight is getting much better and, together with his twin brother James, he has designed a Christmas card for us.
