Story

Jenson is a 2yr old boy who has been recently diagnosed with a brain tumour. In November 2017 he developed hydrocephalus causing pressure to build up in the brain. Whilst under going major surgery to remove the tumour he acquired a brain injury and developed Posterior fossa syndrome. He lost all his mobility and muscle tone. He could not speak,eat,walk,sit up or move his head. This syndrome can take children months to recover and no one knows if he'll regain the use of his legs.
He was referred to The Children's Trust in January and will remain there for the next 4mths until May.His family have been by his side since day one. He has a younger brother Mason 9mths and an older sister Sophia-Rose 7yrs. The family are exhausted with all his current needs but are determined to keep positive for a full recovery. He has made great progress at The Children's Trust, he can say simple sentences and eat without an NG tube. Jenson is nearly sitting up unaided but still requires 24hr care.
This money will enable ongoing physio and speech therapy after he leaves as well as giving the family a chance to adapt their home to accommodate his mobility needs. Having a child with an acquired brain injury is a profound life changing experience, which the family are still coming to terms with. Balancing everyday life with Jensons recovery remains challenging but as a family they hope to get Jenson back on his feet...
Some of the donations made will go towards The Children's Trust and Ronald McDonald House in Tooting.

    We're having a fun time working with squidgy play dough and slime. Jensons cruising with help and has learned to push up into a standing position. The fantastic, NHS paediatric physio team have delivered, a walker to help facilitate coordination and movement. He has finally been able to go out and explore without being worried about falling. Thank you to all the therapists and friends connected to the family. Your time and dedication is clearly working. Xxx

    Well it's been a hot month and Jenson has had both his brother and sister supporting him with learning to walk. Mason has just started walking alone and I've seen Jenson trying to crawl around chasing him. Physio have a walker on order but with his progress who knows what can be achieved! Jenson's cruising with new confidence and Mason is helping him to get over his fear of falling. We're quietly positive that he will be standing alone very soon. Thank you for supporting us on his journey to recovery. Xx

    Jenson has been doing alot more sitting up on his knees. He's so happy with being able to move more freely. His younger brother is almost walking alone..so we have a competition on our hands. A big thank you to the Danny Green Fund for kindly providing Jenson with the specialist Tomcat trike. This is just what he needs to push him forwards with recovery.
