Madison

Madison's love for bright colours on the Mobile Magic Carpet

 

Little Madison has Down syndrome, a chronic lung disease, is oxygen dependent, and has a low immune system. She cannot eat food orally but needs a flexible feeding tube instead. She also has sight problems, might need hearing aids and as a one-year-old she already had open heart surgery. But with our Lifelites-donated Mobile Magic Carpet, she can comfortably move around, explore the bright lights and play with the moving bubbles around her. For some time, she can escape the confines of her conditions.

Madison is fascinated by the Lifelites donated Mobile Magic Carpet and uses it whenever she visits Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. Like so many little children, she loves everything that moves around and is brightly coloured, so she loves playing with bubbles and balloon games on the Magic Carpet.

It's really good for her movement because she can comfortably sit and play on it. The bright colours and music lift up her mood while she has so much to cope with. Her mum said: "Sensory stimulation is really important for Madison and I can tell by her smile that she's having fun when she can watch the moving lights and hear all the exciting sounds."

Two of Madison's four brothers visit Bluebell Wood to play with Madison when she is there. They love it there and are excited to play football with Madison on the Magic Carpet.

Noah

Two year old Noah has a degenerative condition which makes movement very difficult, but the staff at his local children’s hospice are able to use the donated Lifelites technology to encourage him to move through fun and play, helping him to stay active for as long as possible.

Alex

Alex had a brain tumour when he was six years old. After his surgery, he received extensive chemo and radio therapy. He spent three months in isolation when his stem cells were replaced and he initially recovered well. A year later, he relapsed and was given palliative diagnosis. But to the huge delight of his family and friends, his conditions very slowly improved again and is spreading joy with his lovely, bubbly personality!
