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.

Thank you for taking the time to read this page... our aims are simple... to improve the life and well being of our son. Christopher.
At Birth he and his mother suffered a degree of Medical Negligence in that the local hospital weren't paying them much attention during labour. As a result he slipped through a uterus rupture and was slowly starved of oxygen, and after much toing and froing and a mass panic by the midwives and doctors was given birth by 'C-section-'. Then to add insult to injury the ventilation pump they used was not set up properly and Christopher was starved even further of Oxygen.
We have tried to go down the Legal Route, but the eventual result was that it was considered that the damage was caused prior to birth and as such the hospital wasn't held entirely responsible, though they did agree to pay costs.
Our plan is fairly simple, take Christopher to Panama for Stem cell Therapy at the Stem Cell Institute. We have already been there about 4 years ago for a treatment, and the end result was that he had defiantly better strength in his back and didn't hyper-extend as much. However this time we are hoping even more improvements with his Physical condition and/or perhaps his Epilepsy.
We have tried various therapy's such as Physio and Reflexology, and they have in their own way worked but there are limits to what can be done.
We are hoping to travel there in October all being well, though maybe earlier if we can get enough put together, (the sooner the better). Any assistance you would be willing to give would be most welcome..
