Weʼre raising £4,000 to help towards the ongoing cost of Oliver's private physiotherapy sessions
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.
Oliver is 4 years old and has Conradi-Hünnerman-Happle Syndrone. The condition is usually fatal in boys with most not surviving past a few months gestation. Oliver is one of a couple of boys in the world who has survived with this condition. He has multiple brain abnormalities including Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, small cerebellum, small brain stem, enlarged cisterna magna, lissencephaly and small optic nerves. He also has ichthyosis and a couple of bone malformations. As a result, Oliver has global development delay, epilepsy, hypotonia, dystonia, delayed swallow reflex, dysphagia, reflux and is partially sighted. He has had multiple admissions to A&E via ambulance due to seizures and aspiration pneumonia.
Despite all of this, Oliver is such a happy little boy. He brings so much happiness to everyone who meets him.
Oliver needs full support in every aspect of his life - moving, sitting, eating, drinking, playing and our aim is to help him to be as independent as possible.
Oliver has been taking part in weekly private physiotherapy sessions at Kid's Physio Works since January and we have seen a huge improvement in his development. His head control and core control have greatly improved. An hours physiotherapy costs £77. Over the course of a year this is over £4000 so we would really appreciate any help you could give in raising the funds for Oliver's therapy.
We will be holding various fundraising events throughout the year and will be posting regular updates on Oliver progress! You can also check out his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pg/oliversstoryacc

On the 6th October 6 brave people are abseiling down the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Stratford to raise funds for Oliver's therapy! The Orbit is the UK's tallest sculpture and the challenge will require an 80m free fall abseil from the viewing platform! Oliver's Dad will be doing the abseil with a go-pro so we will all get to see all the action and possibly hear a lot of screaming! A big thanks to our lovely friends for volunteering. Please show your support and give what you can to help our Oliver! Lots of Love Katie, Dan and Oliver xxx
