Our son Loukas was a healthy little boy who died very suddenly of pneumonia when he was 18 months old. Today would have been his birthday he would have been two years old.

We have a three year old who really keeps us going but things are so difficult. Missing Loukas is overwhelming especially as we know under different circumstances he would probably still be with us.

You can read an article about what happened to Loukas below:


We still have so many questions over his treatment but it seems increasingly likely that we will not get any answers making it all much harder to deal with.

Oh SarahSofia, I am so truly sorry for your loss. Loukas was so beautiful, so sweet and bright.

There seems to have been such a lot of errors made in his care. No wonder you struggle to move on when you feel he was so badly let down.

I wish there was more I could say. flowers

I am so so sorry. I read your story and my heart goes out to you. It sounds like you did everything you could but the system failed to act fast enough. I just want to say what a beautiful boy. You are going through one of the worst things a human can face. I hope there is some small solace in knowing your son experienced happiness and your love for his whole life. He was in your arms, being loved and cared for by you. I know it is a small thing but it comforts my friend who lost her daughter at 18 months....to know the happiness and pure love you will have given that sparkling, bright eyed boy. He got to live and he got to experience all your love for all his life. But I am so sorry it could not have been for longer and that you are not getting answers. You did not do anything to cause this. You loved him and you acted when you needed to act. It is a terrible series of mistakes that caused this and there was nothing you could do. Sincerest empathy to you.I hope it gets just a little easier to be with as time passes.
