- His white blood cells reduced to zero
- He suffered from a seizure whilst in a coma
- He was resuscitated and brought back to life an amazing 12 times
He relearnt how to walk, talk, and breathe again after spending 3 weeks on an Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine

The money raised went towards the construction of a brand new cardiac hospital wing, helping at the children’s hospital to treat up to 20% more children.
