    Weʼve raised £295 to A power chair for our son who has duchenne muscular dystrophy

    Funded on Sunday, 22nd January 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our son Tommy was diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy 2 days before his third birthday in November 2015.
    DMD is a muscle wasting disease that will confine him permanently to a wheelchair sometime over the next 3-6 years gradually attacking every muscle in his body till he can no longer move independently.
    There is no known cure for DMD and life expectancy is late twenties .
    We have had to fight for everything since Tommys diagnosis and were treated terribly by the people at disability living allowance who forced us to appeal several times before accepting the views of experts.
    We are currently fighting the decision not to move us from a flat at the top of thirty stairs even though in a few weeks our son will have his first wheelchair and that is how this page was born as the many of the kind people who signed and supported our petition asked if they could donate.
    So here it is Tommys just giving page to partially fund a power chair when required.
    Thank you for your support
