Flying Hearts Appeal to Help Children like Buzz

We need your help to keep flying critically ill babies and children to get the treatment they need quickly and safely.

Give what you can to help save young lives

The Children’s Air Ambulance helped to save Buzz’s life in March 2019. He suffered a severe episode of croup, which, due to his rare genetic disorder called Leopard Syndrome, he is very vulnerable to contracting.

In this particular episode, Buzz’s condition was so bad he was fighting for breath and he was taken to the local Conquest Hospital in Hastings. Despite initially responding to treatment, it became apparent he needed to be transferred to Evelina London Children’s Hospital where he could get the specialist care he urgently needed.

The Children’s Air Ambulance and STRS team prepared him for the journey to the capital before transferring him onto the helicopter’s specially designed stretcher and flying him to the hospital in just 27 minutes.

We are so grateful to the Children’s Air Ambulance for getting us to the specialist hospital so quickly. We live on the south coast and the roads are so heavily congested so to know we can be at the Evelina in around 20 minute is a huge comfort. A massive thank you to everyone involved. Melissa, Buzz’s mum
