Brave Will- never give up!
When Saltwater Creations CIC received a heart felt message from a parent just before Christmas we asked if we could share the story with you. This is why we do what we do.
Letter from Will's Mum- Charley
In the Autumn term of 2017 Amanda visited St Mary’s School in Clymping where both my children William 7 and Hannah 4 go ... one of the schools values is perseverance and this was the topic for that term .
The children were all mesmerised by Amanda’s story and William was talking about it at home for days after .... he had now seen true perseverance and was amazed by Amanda's positive outlook.
In December William became unwell with strep throat which then developed into a really nasty condition called Steven Johnson Syndrome. It was a really horrible time and at times difficult to remain positive ... one day in hospital William said to his dad that he wanted to be out of hospital and home for Christmas .... and said that he needed to be like Amanda and show perseverance !
William did exactly that , he started doing all the things the doctors wanted and began to prove them wrong ! He was determined to get home for Christmas and with a bit of convincing managed to get discharged on 23rd December !
Whilst in hospital I made contact with saltwater - to let them know the amazing impact Amanda’s talk had had on William and how her story was helping him (and us) get through such a tough time ..Both Jules and Amanda got in touch and we have remained in touch since - we have even had a visit to Amanda’s house !
Thank you so much 😊 Charley- Wills mum
