Some people call him Isaac, some people call him inspirational, his sisters call him ‘brother’ but for he is simply KIND. This photo sums up his attitude to life, and his attitude to me, his Mum.

Isaac has a rare medical condition called Hypopituitarism. He is on daily medicine and daily injections, not that you would know it. Throughout all his hospital trips and visits, Isaac’s main concern has been me, the nurses, school—anything and anyone other than him.

This year, at the age of 15, he was supposed to be going on a school trip to China. A two-year long, anticipated trip from UK to China. He got a job, he saved up, he started Mandarin lessons, he started a count down timer. He used chop sticks.

With five weeks to go until he was due to leave, the school retracted his place on the trip because they did not feel they could take him with his health concerns. Telling him the news was the hardest thing I have EVER done. Heartbreak and disappointment do not cover the look on his face as I told him he would not be going with his friends to China, he would be staying at home because they cannot take him. As he saw me crying and my look of total helplessness at the situation, he simply said: "Let me get a tissue, your tears are going on your jeans, I will be OK". After I explained the situation to him he asked to speak to the school directly. Not to be angry or cross, not to vent frustration but he wanted to talk to them about why it’s happened so they can change it so no one else gets disappointed.

That’s who he is. That’s who he always is. Pretty amazing and to me the epitome of KIND to the core.


Congratulations Kate on raising such an amazingly kind young man. We are so incredibly inspired by his outlook on life while dealing with medical issues and how he dealt with not being able to go to China with his class after working so hard to save for it. He is an incredible inspiration to us all!
