Belfast mother Angela Fields, whose eldest daughter Nicole died from Rett Syndrome, has appealed to the public to support the work of the Northern Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.

The hospice is the only service of its type within Northern Ireland caring for children and young people with very complex needs.

There are over 1,300 life-limited children and young people and their families living in Northern Ireland who need the specialist care that only the Children’s Hospice can provide.

“Nicole, left, died in 2004 at the age of 16 from Rett Syndrome, which is a rare brain disorder that causes severe disabilities,” said Angela.

“When she was alive, she was the first thing I thought about in the morning and the last thing at night.”

“The respite care that the hospice offered my husband and our other two childen was excellent.


“The staff would look after Nicole and we would get a break. I can’t praise it enough.”
