Children’s Hospice Week
This year’s Children’s Hospice Week, kindly supported by TV3, launches Monday 11th May, focussing on the incredible little heroes – the seriously ill children & their families – cared for by LauraLynn, Ireland’s only Children’s Hospice.

Sometimes Real Heroes Live in the Hearts of Small Children Fighting Big Battles
“Our son Leo was given a place in LauraLynn for end of life care. It turned out that was really where Leo’s story began. The expertise and meticulous care of the staff helped our little boy emerge from a fog of constant pain and discomfort, and life threatening episodes, when too many times we thought we would lose him.
At first it was an occasional raise of an eyebrow, to a full blown face cracking grin. At the same time it was hard to believe that this little boy was living on a precipice every day, because the love, care and joy that LauraLynn enabled us to have with him made us forget. LauraLynn gave Leo back to us in the sense that we became the family we were supposed to be, we got to bring him home, and had him with us for a lot longer than anyone expected.”
– John, Leo’s Dad.
