Travelling with his mother their car was involved in a terrible accident which resulted in the death of Lio’s mum Sasha and life threatening injuries for Lio who was airlifted to King’s College Hospital in London. Lio’s father Martin, his English grandparents and American grandmother made one of our London ‘Homes from Home’ their home for two months as they took turns at Lio’s bedside around the clock which they are convinced contributed to Lio’s recovery.

Martin said, “I was never so grateful for accommodation in my entire life. The darkest days of my life were made more bearable by having a place to stay away from the noise, chaos and pain of the hospital. Every morning I would wake up energised and ready to give me maximum attention to Lio.”
