Teddy and Grandad John

Teddy James Barker 2

After Teddy was born at 32 weeks and 5 days and needing a major operation at the RVI, he become a member of the neonatal/special care baby unit family.

While Teddy was fighting hard every day in the neonatal unit, grandad John also wanted to show he was behind Teddy and he was going to fight every day with his own challenge – John Barker Weight Loss, through his challenge John, his family and friends have and continue to kindly support Tiny Lives. When John started his challenge (01.01.2018) he weighted 16st ¼ at the time of writing this (14.02.2018) he now weights 14st ¾  – well done John!!

Teddy is now home and doing well with his family.  Grandad John is still going strong with his weight loss and support to Tiny Lives and we are sure John will be even more determined now Teddy is home.

Thank you to everyone who has support John so far because of your support Tiny Lives is able to continue to support families on the neonatal/special care baby unit.
