Against All Odds podcast series

Listen to our series of podcasts called “Against all odds”. It features stories from families whose children are not only surviving but thriving. 

Starting with Leo Andrew’s story who is responding well to the therapy he is receiving, despite having a condition so rare it doesn’t have a name.

In the second podcast we chat to Beverly, who is Verity's Mum, a 4 year old girl living in the US with Trisomy 18. Their experience has inspired Mum, Beverly, to set up a charity called 'Verity's Village' which aims to support other families with a prenatal diagnosis of Trisomy 18. 

Our 3rd podcast is Lucy's story of losing baby Albert in Aug 2016. She tells us how fundraising for SOFT UK became a way of telling her story and giving herself something positive to focus on. The knowledge that the money would help others in her situation in the future kept her going. Listen here:
