CERN Inspirational Story
By Katie (Henry’s Mummy)
Imagine… Imagine being told your child is seriously ill.
Imagine crying until you think there’s nothing left.
Imagine feeling like you’ve been punched in the stomach and wandering the corridors, as if your life was on pause for days on end, not able to comprehend what is happening.
Imagine signing a consent form knowing that death is an option.
Imagine having to hand over your child to surgeons for endless hours and waiting…
Imagine having to watch as your once active child isn’t even able to open their eyes for a week.
Imagine the terror…
Imagine the pain of having to leave your baby in the care of strangers and not be able to sleep by their side.
Imagine standing by as your baby’s body is pumped full of poison.
Imagine holding your baby while someone holds a mask over their face as they struggle in fright.
Imagine holding your baby countless times as someone sticks needles in them while they scream.
