The Theo Walker Fund has been established in memory of our son, Theo, who died at the age of 4 & half weeks old from a congential heart condition known as pulmonary atresia with IVS & MAPCAs and a hypoplastic right ventricle.

Theo breaks through the £100,000 barrier!!! (including Gift Aid). Thank you SO MUCH for helping Theo to acheive this. Money raised by the Theo Walker Fund has been donated to five charities - The Brompton Fountain, Chase Kids Hospice, Heartline, Little Hearts Matter and  the Child Bereavement Charity.

WELCOME

 

Thank you for visiting the Theo Walker Fund ('TWF'). We have established this website and the fund for the following reasons:


1. To share our experience with other families starting out on similiar journeys... the moment our child was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition it pulled us out of the comfortable world we knew. It was meeting other families that have been through similar experiences that helped more than anything else.


 

2. To raise money and awareness so that the quality of care available to families can be improved further ... the care we received whilst in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit ('PICU') of the Royal Brompton and then at home from various community organisations was truly exceptional. The provision of this care often relies on charitable donations.


We would welcome and be enormously grateful of any donations in memory of Theo and even more so your support for any TWF fundraising events. Please join our mailing list so that you can be informed of TWF events.

 

3. And the final purpose of this website is personal... we can no longer care for our son. This website and the fundraising events provide us with an opportunity to channel our love for Theo and ensure his remembrance. Theo may no longer be physically with us but he has changed our lives forever. We hope that the spirit which he showed in his short life will be a positive force for the future.


With love and gratitude for the time you have taken to visit Theo's website and the support you provided us by doing just that.

Dan & Lucy, Jan 2010
