This is Ethan. Isn't he cute?
Ethan is 13 months old and has lived in hospital all his life. As in literally, bar one day, hospital has been the only place he has known.
Ethan was born with his intestines outside the body and following an attempt to reinsert them, Ethan needed to start TPN, an introvenous form of feeding. Ethan now urgently needs a small bowel and liver transplant.
It's hard to imagine having a gorgeous little boy like Ethan and not even being able to take him home. Ethan's lovely family want to do something for LLTGL and so his dad Stuart and two friends will be running the Great Manchester Run on 17th May.

Thank you to the Collins family for supporting us at what must be such a worrying time for them, and all of us at LLTGL are keeping our fingers crossed that that call comes very very soon.
