Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity funds Roald Dahl Specialist Children's Nurses in communities across the UK. They provide expert care and support to children with serious illnesses, and their families. We believe every seriously ill child should have access to the best possible healthcare.
I honestly believe that children should have the most magical and amazing childhood filled with love and laughter. It pains me to think that some children have to spend more time in hospital than anyone should ever have to."

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.

Edith being there on the end of the phone for advice and support calms me down. She gives me strength and has taught me how to manage my boys' condition at home. She's given me confidence and it's meant that they spend less time in hospital. We feel that nothing is impossible with Edith on our side.

Marvellous interview, talking about Roald Dahl Nurse Edith
The best feeling was when one of my Young Adults told me I was her role model and she looks up to me and is now in university aspiring to become a qualified Nurse so that she can be kind, caring, and compassionate and show empathy for patients and their families like I do. I will never forget this conversation; I know I make a difference in my patients’ lives.
