You've got this blog

Celebrating young voices 
"You've got this"

We have created a special space for our patients to tell us, in their own words, what Evelina London means to them. We help children and young people with a variety of conditions, and we've invited several of them to share their experiences of being treated for these and beyond.

We love the expression "You've got this", and are inspired by the bravery of our patients every day. Read our "You've got this" blogs to find out how we are making a difference, directly from the amazing young people that we help. It is impossible not to be moved by reading about the challenges they have overcome and their hopes for the future.
