  3. How our Giggle Doctors helped Alfie

Alfie's Mum recently got in touch to tell us how our Giggle Doctors made Alfie smile whilst he was in hospital.

"Alfie was 5 when he was diagnosed with burkitts leukaemia. He spent nearly 4 months on the ward at Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Giggle DoctorWe met Dr I-spy during our first week on the ward she made us all smile and laugh which we hadn't done for a long time. As the weeks went on Alfie knew when the Giggle Doctors were coming and would be ready and waiting for them to come. As soon as he saw Dr I-spy he would run up to her and make jokes with her.

The Giggle Doctors are so important for not only the children but the parents as well. They make it all seem so much easier and make you remember that it's ok to laugh when things are rubbish.

We can't thank you all enough for what you do. Alfie would like you tell Dr I-spy he loves her and misses her lots".
