Story

Please take time to read all this, and see what life is like for one family living in Swanley.

This is Rowan. He lives in Swanley. He has a rare genetic condition called Tubulinopathy.

Due to the fact that his brain did not form correctly, he has profound and multiple learning difficulties. He is suspected to have autism too. He uses a wheelchair. He can display challenging behaviour.

He has incredible curly hair and a cheeky smile and everyone who meets him falls in love with him! He is an amazing little boy who tries so hard and makes his mum and dad proud, every day.

This is Xander, his big brother. Xander is profoundly deaf, autistic and has sensory processing issues. He is a very happy, quirky, loud and cheerful little boy! He wears glasses and 2 cochlear implants and works so hard. He is six years old.

They have two amazing parents. George and Kate...Kate is behind the camera!! Both parents work tirelessly to give the best opportunities to both boys and always see what they can do, not what they can't. But life is hard...their house is not adapted for the needs of the boys and life can seem an endless cycle of hospital appointments and paperwork, battling against 'the system'.

I want to raise money for them to use as they see fit. They have a local charity Step and Learn in Medway that Rowan goes to every Friday which helps with physiotherapy. They might choose to support that. But they also need a great deal of specialist equipment, some of which is very expensive.

Please support them by donating to this page.

    Hi all... just to say a very big thank you to you all for all your sponsorship for my run to help Kate, George, Xander and Rowan. I was able to present them with a cheque for £1315 which works out at £100 raised per mile. They are going to buy garden equipment so that Rowan can access the garden for the first time which I’m delighted about!! You all have made a very big difference to this family xxx
