    Story


    Our little boy River is 6 years old & suffers from a life threatening condition. He is 1 of 9 in the world with a rare mutation on his CNK SR2 gene. There is no cure! River will need 24/7 life long care, he will never really have friends he can play with or share his life with. This is why we would love to fulfil his life with his very own companion & helper, a specially trained therapy dog, which will have a bespoke programme to support River to live his life to the full. River is non verbal, suffers from the life threatening type of seizures called Status Epileticus seizures were his seizures are a medical emergency. He's attended resuss too many times, first when he was only 5 weeks old. I his mother had to perform CPR on River when he was 2 years old. And it was only last month he stopped breathing again in my arms due to a seizure. He also has Central & obstructive sleep apnoea, hypermobilty syndrome, Sensoray Processing Disorder, Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities etc. River continues to have therpies, hospital admissions, & many obstacles in life, we have both given up work to care for our son as he needs around the clock care, so we are hoping to fundraise to make this dream possible for River. All we can do is hope & pray our River makes it into adulthood, as we have nearly lost him so many times, he's often blue lighted to ressus. We want to make the most of everyday we have with him, making special memories, for him to enjoy his life to the best we can. A therapy dog has so many things to attribute to Rivers life and development. River adores dogs, & would mean the world to us as a family to give River this happiness for all he goes through.Despite all his challenges, he is a lovely sunny little boy,& determined to fight everything life has thrown at him,he is loved by everyone who meets him. River is such an inspiration. If you can donate any amount to help us,we thank you so very much.
