    Story

    Joshua, 12 was originally one of our foster children and diagnosed aged 21 months with a genetic condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy for which there is no cure. We decided to adopt him and give him as many magical memories as possible for the time he has left.
    Duchenne takes away everything you learnt to do - breathing; swallowing; talking; walking; feeding yourself; bathing and washing yourself; cleaning your teeth and even the simple act of hugging. One day you can do all of these and within months they're taken away from you.
    Frustrated you have to become reliant on others and machines to do everything for you.
    Joshua needs space to be as independent as possible and for this he needs a downstairs bedroom and bathroom. We would love to build this for him as soon as we can and with your help, perhaps he would get the surprise he so desperately needs and most definitely deserves in the New Year, the funds to extend and adapt ready to build his dream bedroom
