Nathan was born March 2020, just two days after lockdown was announced. He sadly died May 7, this year from interstitial lung disease. This is a condition that makes it difficult for toddlers to get enough oxygen.

Cheryl, Daniel, and Jacob have lost a lot of their loved ones. Now they wait for the pathologist’s report.

Cheryl, who owns two businesses, stated: “Nathan was born on March 25, 2020, two days after the lockdown was announced. He was 9 pounds 5, a little bruiser, and he was fine medically.”

She stated that Nathan became more vulnerable to getting bitten by bugs when the restrictions were lifted and Nathan’s 3-year-old brother Jacob returned to nursery.

“Kids are kids and they pick up one bug after another but it just seemed that Nathan always was hit a little bit harder by it.

“All of us had covid last July, and it did a lot to our health. He was already at a disadvantage after he got his next and third colds. Who knows and who knows what the future holds.

Dr. Mike McKean looked after Nathan at the RVI Newcastle, which Cheryl was proud of for his efforts in helping her son’s rare condition.

She continued: “When we went into the hospital, he said that Nathan had three viruses in his blood already. He picked up two more while he was in the hospital.

“[The doctor]Just said that he had been extremely unlucky. This is very difficult. He got two more viruses. It was too much for him at the end.

“He was a very strong little boy. Thankfully, because he was only two, he didn’t really understand what was going on so we take some kind of comfort in that.”

Cheryl stated that the toddler had a difficult few months. She spent a week in hospital with an infection of the chest in December, and was then placed on antibiotics for the remainder of January.

She claimed it was her decision. “new normal”Due to Nathan’s inability to stay well, we added: “He was very clingy, and very fussy, but he was happy as well. We look back at pictures when we can.”

Sadly, Nathan suddenly stops picking up despite his appearances to be improving. “went downhill with sickness.”Nathan was taken to the hospital and unfortunately never returned home.

She said: “He just wasn’t making any progress. We got up to Newcastle and they put him on a ventilator.

“His body seemed to respond well to steroids. They were unable to control his symptoms, which included a rash and extreme heat. He was then put back on a ventilator to help.

“Whilst they were doing that, he crashed, and they did CPR for about an hour, but he didn’t come back. The staff gave it their all. You can see that they really tried. I’m glad that, if it was going to happen, I’d rather it not obviously, I’m glad that it happened at the hospital.”

Cheryl, 31 and Daniel, 31, have started to organize a fundraiserIn Nathan’s memory, Nathan raised money for the Sick Children’s Trust (Great North Children’s Hospital) and the Child Lung Foundation.

Cheryl stated: “One of the charities is the Sick Children’s Trust, which provides accommodation for the family as well while their kid is in hospital.

“At the RVI, the house is called Crawford House, and it costs them £40 a night to support a family, and we were there for about two weeks.”

Cheryl has even been making ‘forget me not’ patterned vases for her business, Cheryl’s Crafty Corner UK, where some of the proceeds go towards the fundraiser.

She’s also had plenty of support from family and friends, and has sold nearly 800 tickets for the Sick Children’s Trust – Crawford House raffle.

She added: “We decided to organize an event because we had sold so many tickets. It’s a way for us to get together, share the experience, and thank everyone.”

Door entry for the event, which takes place at The Southern Cross in Marton on Friday, July 29, is £1 (or more), with raffle tickets on sale for £5. The event will feature a number of prizes and even a live band and singer.

“It’s bittersweet, as it’s something I shouldn’t have to do. It’s hard to believe that it won’t bring him back, but it’s worthwhile if it helps other children.
