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.”
