Ollie's Story


Ollie comes to Naomi House for regular respite care, along with his parents Vickey and Adrian, and his sister, Lisi.


Ollie was born with Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood, meaning any muscle in his body can become paralysed at any time, including his heart and his lungs. In this short film, mum, Vickey, focuses on their life as a family and as parents to a child with a life limiting illness. She also talks about Ollie being a cheeky, mischievous boy that smiles constantly, loves people and loves life.
