Anthony’s Story in 3 minutes
After returning from a school trip to Disneyland Paris in 2006..
Anthony fell extremely ill and was rushed to his local hospital. After his x-rays came through, Anthony’s family were told his only chance of survival was to be placed on an ECMO life support machine.
During a seven- week stay in Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, he needed to re-learn the very basic functions, using his hand-eye coordination, breathing without the aid of machines and also using his voice and learning to walk again.
Spending 7 Weeks in Hospital with:
3 Viral Infections
10% Survival Rate
Anthony then went on to make a full recovery. He then went on to help Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity secure a £7.5m charity partnership, with the funds going towards a brand new wing at the children’s hospital.
In recent years Anthony was voted one of the happiest people in the UK by the Independant on Sunday in their ‘Happy List’ for the work he carries out to help enrich the lives of others.
Now a global inspirational speaker, Anthony continues to inspire audiences around the world.
