Childhood stops for seriously ill children. At Barretstown we Press Play on childhood.
Families always talk of how a diagnosis of serious illness means that normal family life stops, everything becomes about the sick child and the fight to save their life. Barretstown helps children and their families deal with the emotional and physiological scars often left after months and years of treatment. Hospitals treat the illness but Barretstown treats the child.Find Out More
