‘Thanks for your sup­port’ – mum

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE par­ents of brave Sa­muel Bellerby have ex­pressed their grat­i­tude af­ter re­ceiv­ing over­whelm­ing sup­port dur­ing his bat­tle with se­ri­ous heart dis­ease.

Sam’s mother Lisa said: “First of all, Mac­cles­field hos­pi­tal have been phe­nom­e­nal - es­pe­cially Dr Wright who has been in­cred­i­ble. With­out him, we don’t think Sam would be alive now.”

Lisa also ex­pressed her grat­i­tude to the staff at Alder Hey chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal in Liver­pool.

She said: “I can’t sing their praises enough - our kids have seen things that no child should and if it wasn’t for their sup­port, I don’t know what we’d have done.”

Lisa said: “Our older boys Al­fie and Luis are amaz­ing and def­i­nitely a credit to us - they’re so good with Sam. Their school, St John’s pri­mary, have been amaz­ing, of­fer­ing coun­selling and sup­port for the boys”

The pair have also re­ceived in­cred­i­ble sup­port from fam­ily and friends.

She said: “Our par­ents have been great too - my dad has even taken the boys to Cyprus so they can have a break. Thanks also go to Lisa Flynn, who doesn’t know us that well, but started all our fundrais­ing.”
