It surprises people when they find out we are sometimes able to discharge children who no longer need our expert care. It means an incredible child or young person is able to manage the symptoms of their condition without us – giving us the chance to throw a special goodbye party, celebrating their strength and determination.
That’s exactly what we were able to do for Emily.
Emily truly is one of a kind.
Full of life and happiness, she is living with a condition doctors can’t name. Out of 100,000 children with rare diseases, her chromosomes don’t match a single one.
She has defied doctors since she was just four months old and she’s been a regular visitor to Brian House.
Over seven years, Emily has enjoyed day visits and overnight stays, enjoying days that were full of fun – making friends and creating memories to last a lifetime.
