Just wanted to say that my thoughts are with you all

There are so many people in need – and you cannot help everyone, although helping those close to you, be that via family friends or colleagues brings the reality home to you, and so I wish you all the best for your son and your family and I hope my small donation will help you all x
Hi, I have been following the story of your beautiful son Jago, and have been willing him on to get better and stronger everyday. As a mother to 3 children your story really touched me, it first shocked me as I read what had happened, it is so easy for children to slip away from us (especially when you have 3 you really do need eyes all over, that’s something I can certainly appreciate) Plus I’m sure we all have a tale of a child who has slipped, fallen or bumped something, I have lost count of how many times I have been to doctors or hospitals with concussion etc it just happens so quickly. BUT then reading on with your story I was so overwhelmed with relief and so pleased to read that Jago had survived and that initial shock turned to hope for his future and for yours as a family and that hope stays with me now as time goes on and he grows and hopefully gets stronger every day. Although lets be honest, this journey for you is far from over, having children, even healthy children is extremely challenging and busy, and to add to that you now have the battle of fundraising, and looking after Jago in the best possible way. My hats off to you, honestly, you must be extremely strong as a couple and as a family. Also, with so many charities all vying for funds I really hope you get as much exposure as possible (have you done any TV work yet? I am sure your story would touch so many more who may not yet know of you or Jago) and I really hope with all my heart that Jago continues to go from strength to strength. It must be rather odd for strangers to post comments to you, but I hope in some small way it gives you a glimmer of hope that people do care and want the best for your beautiful boy. Please continue to keep us all updated. All the very best.
Helen & Ed are dear friends of ours and we were devastated to hear what had happened. Our thoughts are with you all. Steph & Liam O’Flaherty
Lyn, I couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I read this. In fact I’ve read it over and over again and still can’t take it in. I only wish I’d known sooner – I cannot being to imagine what you & Barney have been going through.
Jago – you are a very brave boy, thank you for teaching the rest of us about how precious life is. Stay strong xxx
Your strength and dignity are an example to all. Your lives have touched more than you realise; and we are thinking of you. Celebrate each little step forward and try to absorb the knocks along the way. We hold you in our hearts.
I have a 6 year old son called Jago and I cannot even begin to think what you must be going through. He has always been the ‘exploring’ kind and we have had to pull him out of a few scrapes over the years. I don’t know why I’m sending you this message other than to say that we are thinking of you and big Jago is sending his love to little Jago.
