Story

Our Grandson Oliver 18 months ago was diagnosed with a rare condition called Fibro-Adipose vascular Anomaly (FAVA). FAVA is a very painful condition which caused swelling of the limb difficulties walking and doing normal everyday activities . Oliver walks on tip toes because of this condition, he can not walk very far, tires easily and relies a lot on his buggy , however due to his weight a normal buggy is no longer suitable because this is very painful and uncomfortable for him.
Oliver now needs a disability pushchair which not only supports his leg a lot better but would also enable him to sleep and feel more comfortable. a child wheelchair is not suitable as he does not have the support he needs and can not lay back to sleep.
in the next 3-4 months Oliver is due to have his second operation on his leg where he will be in plaster cast for 6 months and will need intensive physio to learn to walk. run and use the leg all over again.

    Thank you everyone that has donated. Oliver now has his pushchair, and is enjoying family days out. Many of you have asked if there is anything else that Oliver requires.we are now raising money for an ipad for him to take into hospital with him. My daughter and myself are so overwhelmed with the generosity that you have shown and continue to show. tThank you again.
