“I can’t thank you all enough for your support to help bring Seb home, we genuinely wouldn’t be here without all of you.

“I also want to thank the doctors that looked after him in the US, they’ve done an incredible job and we are all grateful.seb 5

“I also want to say a massive thank you to all Seb’s friends and colleagues in the NHS who have rallied round to make things happen here. We are so grateful and proud to have an NHS.”
