    Story

    Ethan is a very courageous and amazing young man who has a brain tumour and is registered blind. Having been through 3 rounds of chemo and currently on a fourth round of drugs to help reduce the tumour. He has lived with this since he was 5 years old. For 9 years he has battled this awful disease but he doesn't let it get him down. I would like to raise the money to help him be able to read just like other people do and take for granted. If he wants to read it either has to be read to him or it has to be in an extremely large font which is not so easy to access. He truly is an inspiration to many others and never complains about anything even when he is feeling ill.
    The Orcam is glasses with a camera which can help him to read a wide variety of texts, food and medicine labels and can recognise faces.
    He dreams of going to college and university and this would make a huge difference to his life. Unfortunately it costs £2800 which his family doesn't have.
    He is always up beat and uses humour to get him through the tough times. He tries as much as he can to stay in school and is in top sets for his subjects and manages to keep up with his peers even though he can at times miss school through illness or appointments. I have seen him counsel friends when they are having a tough day. He always asks about others and how their day has gone and if he hears any one is ill he always inquires as to how they are. He so deserves to be recognised for his unfailing care for others especially his very close family. He never asks for anything and is appreciative of everything that he receives no matter what it is. He makes the most of every minute of every day. He hates to give in to his illness and tries hard not to let it stop him from experiencing all that he is able to. I know that all children are special and precious but Ethan has filled our hearts like no other and I would love to see him be able to have his life enhanced with this technology to help with his studies.
