Shortly after he was born, Teddy was diagnosed with a lung condition called Interstitial Lung Disease that puts him at severe risk for respiratory infections that can quickly turn dangerous. Since his diagnosis, Teddy has spent the majority of his young life in and out of hospital.
The early months of Teddy’s life were some of the hardest for his family. Lily, his mum, said that Teddy was incubated, in and out of the ICU, in an induced coma, and doctors didn’t think he’d make it to his first birthday.
During this stressful and overwhelming time, Lily turned to the Health Play Specialists at their hospital for support, especially her friend Emily.
