This is Dylan. He is just 7 years old.
On the 12th February 2015, just after his 4th birthday he was diagnosed with a terminal illness called DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.
This genetic disease is 100% fatal and will cause Dylan to die from heart and respiratory failure but before that he will become totally paralysed and rely on specialist equipment, such as a specialised electric wheelchair which he will one day be confined to.
Dylan needs his home adapting and equipment purchasing for him to have any independence in the future.
We are fundraising to provide Dylan with the independence and full life he deserves.
Every penny will go towards Dylan’s Dream a fund set up to ensure dylan gets the best out of life.

This is the hardest thing we could go through as a family and would like to thank everyone for the support shown xx

    ❗❗ massive news ❗❗ the council have today told us they have approved the adaption of a 4 bed bungalow for us which is incredible... we are still funding parts of the move like storage solutions, carpets, decorating Dylan's room, and the garden will be needing adaptions to make it suitable for him and his wheelchair. If you would like to take back your donation and give it to someone who is trying to fund building work then please contact me and I will sort this for you 😍
