About William's Gift

Our son William was born with a very rare disease which affected his entire bowel. (Total Intestinal Aganglionosis). In order for him to survive, he was ‘fed’ intravenously with Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN).

On 11th December 2019 William sadly passed away (aged 6) after developing complications.

William was our inspiration behind creating this charity. We spent many months in hospital over the 6 years and know how lonely and depressing it can be.

The idea to provide care packages to children and their families in hospital with bowel and TPN related conditions was born out of our own experiences.

William was known for his beautiful smile and this charity aims to cheer up other children in hospital with a ‘little box of smiles’.

We are a registered charity in the North West of England and currently, primarily cover the 2 local children’s hospitals (Alder Hey and Royal Manchester) as well as the Children’s ward at Warrington Hospital.
