Raising money in memory of Rahul

09 Oct News Rahul Boyle sleeping hospital.jpg

Rahul Boyle was an incredibly brave and beautiful little boy. Born prematurely he was cared for in Chelsea Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) but tragically died at just 12 days old.

“Rahul gave us 12 of the most precious days. There is no silver-lining. A sweet little boy, who should be with us, is not. With Rahul, we experienced the NICU first-hand. A place no parent, or baby, wants to be, yet a place we are eternally grateful for. A place which is sustained by outstanding medical care and hope,” says mum Sonali.

Both Sonali and her husband Harry, together with family and friends, are undertaking a series of feats in Rahul’s name. Dad Harry and friends will be running the Venice Marathon on 23rd October, while Sonali and friends will be climbing Yorkshire’s Three Peaks on 15th October. Also on 15th October, an incredible 56 family members will undertake a 12 mile sponsored run/walk in seven countries around the world, from India to Brazil.

“We are supporting two NICUs; Chelsea & Westminster (London), where Rahul lived and received incredible care, and Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital (India), which treats babies from the poorest communities in Southern Gujrat, at no cost. All funds will go directly to these two special NICUs. Their work, in turn, will give premature and critically-ill babies a chance of survival. It is humbling to see just what doctors and nurses can do when given the right resources.”
