10-year-old Patrick is now able to walk to school and run around with his friends after surgery to remove a large hernia. Patrick’s mum tried to get medical treatment but on her limited income she couldn’t save enough to afford the surgery he needed. Instead her only option would have been to borrow money and get into debt and further poverty. Thanks to Pat for taking part in our 2017 Tring Ultra every aspect of Patricks surgery was covered. This is Dickson, our healthcare volunteer, with Patrick and his mum shortly after surgery.
