Archie, Stanley and Daisy's story

Archie was 3 when Stanley was born. At two weeks the family were told Stanley had a potentially fatal inflammation of the brain, which would severely compromise his life. For the first three years, the family learned to cope and a healthy baby girl, Daisy, was born. However things didn’t stay this way for long as Archie then became unwell and was diagnosed with Leukaemia. The family, who were already dealing with Stanley’s condition, turned to Claire House Hospice, where both respite was offered for Stanley as well a play specialist for Archie.
