£1,913raised of £2,025 target by 67 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,913 to help fund a helmet for Teddy to treat Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly which currently isn’t funded by the NHS.

    Worksop, UK
    Funded on Friday, 24th August 2018

    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

    When Teddy was a couple of weeks old, we noticed he always tilted his head to one side, this was caused by something called Torticollis. Unfortunately this has now caused Teddy to have severe Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly.

    This can be treated wearing a TiMband helmet, which is made to the exact model of your baby’s head shape. This is then modified at regular intervals throughout treatment to gently bring about correction as the head continues to grow during the early months of a baby’s life. This treatment is not funded by the NHS and costs a total of £2,025.

    I was told by the health visitor that the NHS do not do anything until 18 months of age. Luckily I had carried out my own research and found that by 18 months of age there is nothing that can actually be done as it will be to late and he would then be left with permenant deformity.

    Teddy is beginning his treatment on Friday 29th June and we have 2 months to try and raise the funds. if anyone is able to donate any amount no matter how small we will be forever grateful and if not then thank you for taking the time to read this.

      My cousin’s son had to wear one of these helmets so I’m aware of the costs involved. Hope you reach your limit and all goes well.
