Mum who lost 4 kids in arson attack’s special gesture to nurses who saved her

A mum who lost four of her young children in an arson attack that left her with 75 per cent burns has given a precious gift to the hospital team who saved her.

Michelle Pearson had to be placed into an induced coma after suffering horrific burns in the blaze at the Jackson Street, Walkden, Greater Manchester in December 2017.

Her four youngest children – Demi, 15, Brandon, eight, Lacie, seven and three-year-old Lia tragically lost their lives.

Now Michelle has been able to give something back – presenting a cheque for £1,000 to the Wythenshawe burns unit.

The money was raised by family and friends following a number of fundraising events, including the one year anniversary of the tragedy.

Michelle’s mum Sandra Lever posted photos of the 37-year-old presenting a cheque to doctors and nurses on Facebook .

The family gave the Manchester Evening News permission to share the photos with readers.

Sandra said: “We would just like to thank everybody for their generous donations.

“We have raised a huge rounded amount of £1000 for Wythenshawe burns unit.

“We managed to do this from the charity day we held on the 9th of December and the first year memorial Day on the 11th of December.

“We have been able to do this by selling DBLL merchandise such as bags, badges, pens, baubles etc.

“We would like to say a big thank you to our Pink Giraffes for everything they have done and still continue to do.

“We would like to thank our community for their continued support.

“From, myself, Michelle & her family xx.”

In December, Michelle recorded a video from her hospital bed which was played to supporters who gathered on Jackson Street to remember the youngsters on the one-year anniversary of the attack.

She thanked the firefighters who battled to save her children, as well as members of the community for the incredible support the family had received over the past 12 months.
