Rare Disease Day 2013

Posted: February 12, 2013 by INC in medical conditions

I came across this video for Rare Disease Day which is 28th February. As an awareness raising film, I thought it extremely effective and well done. I felt quite inspired.

I particularly like the way it tells a story simply and entertainingly. It made me think.

I had just eaten a doughnut. It was the last week of the holidays and I was out shopping with my mum. We were near Victoria. We went from shop to shop of looking for hair straighteners. When my tummy started to hurt mum said it must be the doughnut. But it wasn’t. I had appendicitis only I didn’t know it. I spent two days on the sofa, swallowing pain killers and drinking glass after glass of water. My parents were worried when the pain got worse. They brought me to the hospital, but by that time my appendix had burst.

ECHO Stands For Evelina’s Children Heart Organisation

On the 23rd January 2010 I was asked up to Evelina hospital to star in a film about people with heart problems. Also in the film were a lot of my friends, including Robbie Georgel who I go to school with and I have been friends with him for many years and Jack de Naeyer who I have known ever since I was born.

We arrived around 9 am to start shooting at about 10. There were about 20 of us including four medical staff taking part in the filming. The medical staff involved were Dr Owen Miller, Melinda Edwards, Gemma Day and Dr Thomas Witten (I was his first ever emergency).

We were filmed being interviewed, taking part in role plays and talking about our experiences. A lot of the activities referred to how people will cope when they are older and have to move out of the Evelina. I really enjoyed the day because I enjoy acting and cinema.

The launch was on the 11th May 2010 at the cinema at Evelina hospital. We arrived to a red carpet experience. All feeling like film stars, we then watched all the films in the cinema and each of us were called up for an Oscar award. Over all the event was great fun and its something I would like to do again…

Part Two 

             The first day going to the Royal Marsden felt scary but I had to do it for H. It was so scary because I knew it was happening. On my way there I was thinking it was all a dream and I would wake up and everything would be fine but I guess life isn’t that easy. (more…)

We were having a look at other blog posts tagged with Evelina Hospital and came across this one

It describes the old Evelina, the one that was demolished in the 1970s.

Take a look and see how it strikes you.

How does it compare with the Evelina Hospital today?

Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is a form of leukaemia. It is the most common form of childhood cancer. I didn’t know a lot about leukaemia or childhood cancers until September 2009, when my little sister was diagnosed with ALL. (more…)
