    Story

    Jenson was a 2yr old boy who had been 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 years to recover and no one knows if he'll regain all the mobility he had.
    He was referred to a neuro rehabilitation centre called The Children's Trust in January 2018 and remained there for 4mths until May 2018. He fought hard to regain as many physical skills as possible and managed to go back to pre-school and make friends. He then suffered a devastating blow as his tumour began to grow back in 2019. He has been on weekly chemotherapy and finished his last treatment during Lockdown in July 2020.He continues to remain stable with the next scan in June.We have funded his physio, swimming lessons and horse riding but we need help as Lockdown has forced alot of his usual clubs and classes to close.
    His family have been by his side since day one. He has a brother & Sister Mason 3yrs & Sophia-Rose 10yrs. The great progress which has allowed him to attend a mainstream Primary School needs to continue.Jenson is standing unaided but needs more stamina to keep standing and therefore still requires 24hr care because of his uncontrolled balance and coordination.
    This money will enable ongoing rehabilitation using specialist equipment to improve his chances of walking independently.Having a child with an acquired brain injury is a profound life changing experience.Balancing everyday life with Jensons recovery remains challenging but as a family we hope to get Jenson back on his feet so he can play football and enjoy being independent.
    Some of the donations made will go towards Sebastians Action Trust as a thank you for helping us during a traumatic time.

      Jenson has been battling through the isolation period of Covid 19..we've had 8wks of home schooling,exercise, video calls with physio, Salt, consultants and chemo treatments. There are 6wks left of chemo and an anxious wait for the scan. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it's gone. Thank you to everyone who continues to support us..your donations make a difference xx

      Amazing.....we've done it! Thank you so much for your support. Everything we do to help him become more independent helps. Today's scan results showed another reduction in tumour size. He's getting stronger and each person involved has helped to achieve this. 2020 will be a great year xx

    I'm Jensons Mum, I have been with him since the day of his diagnosis. Every step he takes I fight for his right to receive the rehabilitation he needs. Brain injury is a profound life changing experience and affects everyone in the family. Together we hope to raise awareness.
