Preston’s Story

Ten-year-old Preston is a happy, friendly boy whose life-threatening heart condition doesn’t stop him from running around and playing with his sister, Febbie.

His mum and dad, Julia and Isaac, have been told that as Preston only has the use of one lung, and he cannot have further surgery.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People provides much needed emotional and practical support to families with children like Preston. It has been invaluable, particularly during lockdown, with Julia describing it like a holiday for the whole family.

“The children both love it, and thanks to your donations, Preston is safe and happy doing things that he normally can’t, like swimming in the hydrotherapy pool”.
