    Story

    Our beautiful boy Charlie is 2, he is a smiley cheeky chappy, loveable and determined which is just as well because Charlie faces big challenges and changes for the rest of his life. Charlie, along with his twin sister Poppy were born at 30 weeks and spent much of the first year of his life in and out of hospital with various health issues. Finally at 18 months he appeared to be on the up, spending less time in hospital and was on the verge of learning to walk. This all changed October 17th 2016. Charlie woke that morning in considerable distress, reluctant to crawl or put any weight on his legs. He was taken to hospital where an MRI confirmed the worst and changed our lives forever. Charlie had a swelling on his spine caused by a rare Arteriovenus Malformation (AVM) which had led to his spinal cord becoming damaged resulting in paralysis from the waist down. Charlie was immediately transferred to Great Ormond Street given the rarity of his condition and he remained there for 4 weeks.
    Charlies' needs are ongoing, so physiotherapy is one of the key aspects of giving him the best possible chance at a normal life and adapting to his situation. NHS physio has already gone from 3 times a week to once a fortnight and this will then stop altogether. We therefore need to raise funds for further private physio. This will also help his little body have the best chance of any recovery in the future.

    We are cycling the 37 mile Downs Link from Guildford to Shoreham by Sea in July to raise awareness for his cause

      4 days to go before we "Cycle for Charlie" its been a fantastic response so far, so thank you for all your donations. This is so important to us in terms of helping pay for on going physio which is strengthening Charlie, keeping him fit and helping him adapt to a world without the use of his legs. Neurokinex near Gatwick are doing some great work with him, but at £630 for 10 sessions, you can see why every penny is really important. So thank you again for making a difference and helping us secure a long term plan for Charlie
