Joseph's story

Joseph Burwood was admitted to St Mary's PICU when he was only 6 weeks old and thanks to the care he received from the amazing staff on PICU, Joseph made a full recovery. Last year he came back to visit the staff who looked after him during his time at St Mary's. The COSMIC Team and PICU staff were delighted to see Joseph well and happy, and he particularly enjoyed being surrounded by all the lovely toys in the COSMIC office!

Coming back to St Mary's PICU can be a very emotional experience for our past patients, and especially their families.

Despite this, Joseph's parents Natalie & Gary wanted to say thank you to the staff that looked after their baby and supported them throughout their time on the unit. To show their appreciation they very kindly bought treats for PICU staff to enjoy during their break and Joseph's older brother and sister made adorable cards thanking PICU staff for helping their little brother get better.

Natalie & Gary have been great supporters of COSMIC and Gary was one of our fantastic London marathon runners this year, raising an incredible £1,723!
