Weʼve raised £1,322 to raise money so that Toby can get the treatment he needs to give him a safe range of food.
- Funded on Saturday, 20th July 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Toby is 4 and has ARFID (avoidance/restrictive food intake disorder) connected to his autism. He has significant sensory processing issues especially with texture and smell and is very ocd about how food looks. He is currently only eating one thing and drinking milk, the worry is that if he finds something ‘wrong’ with the biscuits he will be unable to eat them. Toby has been approved to attend a food clinic where he will be put on an intensive programme to give him a safe range of food. He will never eat like a ‘normal’ person and a safe range of food will probably be about 5, more if possible. Unfortunately this is not available on the NHS and will cost £5,000 for 18 months of treatment. We cannot afford to pay this and charity funding could take months and isn‘t guarenteed. We have the opportunity to start in about 3 weeks time but can’t start until we have the money to pay for the sessions. Please, please, please can you help us to raise the money so that Toby can start his treatment?
