    Hello My name is Gareth

    i am a proud father of Twin Boys both 3 and are all i could ever ask for but starting as of last november things started going down hill. One of the boys ended up in hospital with a twisted testicle need less to say that was very worrying. He was in hospital 2days had to have one removed as damage had killed it life kinda got back to normal.

    Feb we was hit with a very sudden death of my Grandad that my boys where close to again that put alot of presure on me and the boys mother as we tried to keep them sheilded from the pains.

    JUNE is the worse month as a father i hope i will ever have to live through when our other son cought Bacterial Meningitis and Septicaemia im sure i dont need to feel you in on the details on what this disease does.

    but as a father i watched for four days my Son lye in a hospital bed not knowing if he would live or die doctors saying its all up to him they are giving him the meds but now its down to him fighting. Four days of thinking any day he could die well his mother slept in the hospital with him and i had to go on acting normal shielding his twin brother from the goings on. Im sure i dont need to go into detial on how messed up as a family we was with this but on the 5th day he came too i remember walking in his room and hearing very softly "Daddy" even now writing this i have tears from remebering this. But after this moment the only way was up and he came back with a Vengeance me and his mother cried alot of joy tears.

    End of June - unfortunately the events had taken its toll on me mentaly and with suffering with depresson i tried to end my own life. But by writing this thankfully i was unsuccessful and i can watch my Sons grow up but this whole event has beaten us down alot and we want to put a line under it all.

    WHY I ASK FOR HELP- we wish to end this year off with a smile i wish to take both my sons to Disney land i know they love Disney and would love the theme park but i also want to stay in the Hotel as well so they get the full experience. The issue is with all that has gone on i have used all my savings and even gone into a little debt to make ends meet as i was not working much. This is why im on here any ANY help to try n make this happen for my children would be unreal and so greatful to any one who could help as the holiday was not cheap and well out of what i could afford any time soon.

    any lil bits would mean so much to me to making this happen to replace bad memories for good ones
