Every day is precious when you have a child with a life-limiting illness.

Chestnut Tree House is a children’s hospice, but it definitely isn’t a place of sadness. It’s where children like Maisy-Leigh come to spend happy days laughing and playing and whizzing up and down the corridors – and to make every moment count.

A young girls sit with her parents at the bottom of some stairs.

I call her the light in our dark – being her mum is the most rewarding thing in the world.

Hayleigh, Maisy-Leigh's mum

Maisy-Leigh has a rare, life-threatening genetic condition called Coffin-Siris syndrome. Her parents have had to learn to live each day as it comes, not knowing what each day will bring.

It can be overwhelming and exhausting.

Chestnut Tree House allows the whole family to have fun, switch off from normal routines and give the light in Maisy-Leigh a chance to shine brightly. She plays in the sensory room, she can go swimming in our specially designed pool, and even makes our staff play the piano for her! She loves her care worker, Amie, who allows Maisy-Leigh's parents to have a precious few hours to just be Hayleigh and Luke.

A stay at Chestnut Tree House gives them the time and strength they need to carry on and be the best team for their daughter.
