Our feature on the spring newsletter is the fantastic legacy being left by robbierally...

Some of you may have recently seen the story of 10 year old Robbie on 2016 and 2017’s Stand Up To Cancer. 

Robbie was eight years old when he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour and, despite the best efforts of medical staff, died aged 10 in February 2016 – four years after losing his mother Kate to breast cancer. robbiesrally was set up in his memory at the request of his father Mark, and siblings Harry and Lara.

Southampton Children’s Hospital has specialist cancer and neurology units, treating a population of over 3 million people from across the south coast. Currently, rehabilitation for children after neurosurgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment across the NHS is provided while patients remain in hospital but is limited once they return home.

Mark’s aim is to provide a complete outpatient rehabilitation service – known as ‘robbiesrehab’ in partnership with Southampton Children’s Hospital. In 2017 I was the first member of the new team, focusing on providing this specialist care for children once they have been discharged from hospital following treatment.

The children's neurosurgery unit in Southampton sees around 300 patients a year with a range of brain conditions.

This project is already making a huge difference to our young patients, helping them to return to as normal a life as possible. Read more about Robbie’s story in the charity newsletter.
