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.


Meadow and Summer were born on 22nd May 2014. It was apparent from an early stage that things were not quite right with the twins. After a year they no longer said Mummy or Daddy, they cried a lot and had meltdowns and self - harmed for no apparent reason. While their Health Workers advised that twins are sometimes later in development, they were not unduly worried, but John & Jade were still very much concerned at the twins’ lack of development. Their worst fears were confirmed when in January 2016 they were given the devastating news that their girls were not just delayed in development but were severely autistic. Non – Verbal autistic was their diagnosis at 18 months old.

After vigorous persistence by their parents, with the local authority, Summer & Meadow  have finally been enrolled in a rigorous ABA programme to help improve their focus and communication skills. They are extremely fortunate as there are 200 disabled children waiting for 20 places in the local facility.

Their exhaustive research, however, discovered that Stem Cell Therapy has been successful in the treatment of autistic children and found evidence of miraculous results in many cases. Unfortunately, however, Stem Cell Therapy is not available under the NHS. The specialist in the provision of this treatment is Dr Neil H Reardon, PA, PhD, and his clinic is based in Panama.

The cost of the therapy is £16,000.00 per single treatment per child plus of course the travelling and other costs of the trip to Panama. It is possible that more than one treatment may be necessary.

The children have both had tests which have proved that they are suitable candidates for Stem Cell Therapy. John & Jade are now planning their first trip to Panama in the Autumn of 2018 and we are trying to raise as much money as we can to help them achieve the help that they need for their girls.
