A child’s miraculous recovery from potential blindness has inspired her mother to hold a charity event for the hospital which saved her daughter’s sight.
Chloe Goy (three) of Weston Hills was born with congenital cataracts and needed an operation to remove the affected eye lenses.
Now her mum Anya Woolsey (22) wants to thank doctors at Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, by raising at least £1,000 at a charity dance and disco next month.
Anya said: “When Chloe was born, the doctors at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, did their normal checks and thought she would be blind.
“Chloe was transferred to Queen’s Medical Centre where they operated immediately and when she was four weeks old, they operated again to remove the cataracts.
“She had to wear contact lenses which had to be changed every day and this was very traumatic, but after another operation last year, my daughter can now wear glasses.”
The event is at Holbeach Community Centre on June 29 at 7pm and tickets priced £15 for adults and £5 for children are available from Anya on 01406 389230 or Tracey Wilson on 01406 380606.
