At Any Time there are over 100 clinical research studies taking place, ranging from observational studies to complex, interventional clinical trials. The design of the new Alder Hey was based on a drawing by 15 year old patient, Eleanor Borgan that impressed the architects. Alder Hey was the first to test penicillin saving a child from pneumonia in 1944.
When he was just 11 months old Jacob was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Jacob’s local GP referred him to Alder Hey where doctors quickly made the diagnosis. He successfully finished treatment 2 years later, but a year on the cancer returned. After another round of chemotherapy and radiotherapy he was given the all clear in 2015. Jacob is an Alder Hey Children’s Charity Young Fundraising Ambassador and the reason why we think it’s so important to support Alder Hey and all the amazing work and research they do.
