Jessie May has a team of dedicated nurses who provide care to children and families during a child’s life and after their death.

Sophie and her Family

“Having support from Jessie May Nurses is like having an extra pair of hands. They can administer all of Sophie’s medicine which means that I can use this time to take Sophie’s sister to the dentist or choir practice or ballet class. I can even help with homework! The support I get from Jessie May means that my husband doesn’t have to support me for those few hours. It’s so important.”
