Focus on Theo Kirwin

"We have spent the last ten years gradually coming to terms with what happened to Theo and we have finally begun to feel a bit more normal. We have a new adapted home and full care now which has allowed us to relax and lead a much easier life." - Jo Kirwin

Theo Kirwin developed pneumococcal meningitis at the age of four months which left him badly damaged. Theo's mum, Jo, says, "His development is arrested somewhere between 12 and 18 months."

Our latest gallery shows how life is for the Kirwin family, a decade after Theo's illness.
