13 year old Darcy Hoffman and her mum, Leanne , stayed with The Sick Children's Trust at Scott House whilst she underwent a life changing procedure at Freeman Hospital. Diagnosed with a heart condition known as cardiac dysrhythmia when she was just three weeks old, meaning she had an abnormal heartbeat, Darcy had needed to take copious amounts of medication to keep her healthy up to this point.

Ella got a new heart after five months in Freeman Hospital. A lot of that time she was on life support and it felt like we were too, but getting a new heart finally brought my baby back to life.

Ella was just 11 months old when her heart began to fail. Six months later she underwent her first open heart surgery at Freeman Hospital in the hope that her heart could be repaired, but this wasn’t to be the case. It was decided her only chance of survival would be to have a heart transplant and her family began the agonizing wait.

We had been told about Scott House but had not been expecting the level of comfort, not to mention how close it was to the hospital.

Olivia was born with Ebstein's anomaly, a rare heart condition which accounts for just 1% of congenital heart conditions. Since she was born, she has undergone specialist treatment at both the Royal Victoria Infirmary and Freeman Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne, where we have supported her family in Crawford and Scott Houses.

At a time when we were completely lost and didn’t know what to do with ourselves, we were given a place to go.
