I feel very lucky to be able to play with these toys and I do everyday. If I'm feeling generous I let my little brother have a play too.

Our Roald Dahl nurse has become part of the family, like an auntie. You don’t feel stupid asking any questions at all.

My role is because of, and is enhanced by, the support from Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. I would like to say a very big thank you.

Roald Dahl nurse Jodi's support means everything. It's not that it's her job, it's her personality. When we've been sat there in tears wondering why Bella hasn't grown out of her condition and it's so frustrating, she's just so supportive.

My child is here today because of our Roald Dahl occupational therapist Kate. I can’t believe this service isn’t offered to every child with the same needs.

Thanks to help from my Roald Dahl nurse Liz, I finally feel like I am capable of dealing with sickle cell disease. I feel like I can become who I want to be, and not allow this illness to overshadow me.
