Weʼre raising £5,000 to fund intensive physio and equipment for our 9 year old son who has cerebral palsy.

Basingstoke, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Jed is a nine year old boy who happens to have triplegic spastic cerebral palsy. We are fund-raising to provide some intensive physio and equipment to build Jeds strength after having a Baclofen pump fitted back in September 2017. The pump releases muscle relaxant around his body continually. Meaning he can move easier and is in much less pain but this has meant that Jed is very weak and needs to work on the muscles that have been hidden by spacticity.

Jed was born full term 37 minutes after his twin brother Logan. He was breech with the cord around his neck. Which starved his brain of oxygen. Resulting in a very poorly baby. At 3 weeks old we were told the devastating news that Jed would have cerebral palsy. Jed would most likely never walk, or be independent. Here we are 9 years later and they were right. Jed can't walk and he has very limited use of his right arm. He needs help with every aspect of his care. Except eating and building lego! Jed is very good at both of those. His left arm thankfully is fully functioning and you would never win an arm wrestle with him!!

Jed is a smart, charming and outgoing boy who attends mainstream school. We are so proud of the boy he has become. Life is hard for him but every day he strives to do his best with a huge smile on his face.

So this is where you come in......

What we are asking is for you to donate £2 (or £4!!) via Jed's Just giving page and then share Jed's page with all your friends, encouraging them to donate a £2 also. Then they can share with their friends. Who can share with their friends and then their friends etc etc...... You can see what we are trying to achieve here.

If you can do this, we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jed's daddy is planning to run a half marathon at then end of the year to raise extra funds. I might even complete a 10k!

Thank you again for taking the time to read about about Jed!

    This is Jed's Dad, John. In under 2 weeks he will be tackling his first half marathon in Maidenhead. He has been training hard for the last few months and it turns out he's a very good runner (much faster than me. I'm not jealous!) Not only will John be raising money for Jeds £2 project. But also for Home-Start North West Hampshire. A charity very close to our hearts as it supported us when the boys were small. We had a volunteer for 6 weeks who came to our house and cuddled the babies. We also attended their Multiple birth Group!

    We have reached target in super quick time and it's all down to you wonderful people! There aren't enough thank yous to show our gratitude. But it doesn't stop there. Jed will need physio as he grows so we will still be fund-raising. Watch this space as John will be running a half marathon sometime in September. With so much love from us Carters ❤
