As parents, we want our children to be both happy and healthy - stopping at nothing to ensure their lives are fulfilled. But for Lucy and Mike Carroll, both their son and daughter have been diagnosed with the incurable Batten disease - a rare genetic condition, meaning they are unlikely to live past the age of 12 without medication.
Seven-year-old Ollie has lost the ability to talk and walk and four-year-old Amelia (without the treatment) will lose her mobility, eyesight and the ability to swallow. Both children have been receiving a drug as part of a clinical trial which has stabilised their condition.
However, NICE have recommended the drug should not be given out on the NHS. The parents have started a campaign called Ollie’s Army which includes an online petition to reverse the medical body’s decision. The family join us live today.
