"I don't get frightened about coming to hospital and I never cry - even when it's treatment day"

About: Royal Manchester Children's Hospital

(as the patient),

I am 6 years old and I come to the children's hospital because I've got ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukeamia).

The first thing I do when I come here is go for breakfast in the cafe and I always have lots of BACON! I try to find something to play with, I like the computer games, they're my favourite thing to do.

The play ladies are good at knowing what I like, she puts the cars and the garage out that I like.

I like it when it's more quiet in the hospital, not when it's busy.

I like Dr Wynn, he's nice and he's friendly. He's good at telling me what's happening to me. He supports Liverpool though which isn't good!

I don't get frightened about coming to hospital and I never cry - even when it's treatment day. When I come for treatment I go to the shop and buy a toy first.

I came for a sleep (aneasthetic) the other day and even went back to school afterwards. I don't mind coming to hospital.
