She said: “I’m really grateful to Great Ormond Street for doing all they could for my son and for helping us get through a very difficult time.”
Chrystalla’s son was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, a condition where fluids build up in the brain, when he was 13-weeks-old and even though he will live with this condition for the rest of his life, his condition is now stable.
She said: “I really couldn’t thank them enough for all they have done.”
