Story

Baby Tony at 41 days old was admitted to hospital with multiple fractures of all his limbs, dislocations of various joints, blunt trauma to his face and multiple other injuries. He had been left anything upto 10 days before he was taken to the doctors in an unresponsive state. By this time his poor body had given up to the injuries and he developed Sepsis, toxic shock and multi organ failure. He was on the brink of death and if it wasn't for the amazing NHS working so quickly and tirelessly on him for the next 3 months he would not have survived. Sadly in 2017 due to the injuries and infection he had to have both his legs amputated..... He will still need multiple operations going forward for the rest of his life. He is also deaf in one ear, but he is now a happy 6 year old that loves life.

Tony came into our lives at 4 months old when he was well enough to leave hospital. We then went on to adopt him in 2016 and we couldn't be prouder to call him our son. His strength and determination is incredible.

Unfortunately he is left with major life changing injuries - he is a double through knee amputee, has part of his left hip socket missing, is deaf in his right ear and motor problems with both thumbs and his left wrist.

The funds raised will go into a bank account in Tony's name and will help to fund equipment needed for him at home and school. We are currently adapting our home to cater for all Tonys needs with a bedroom, wetroom and a lift and it will be able to give him the independence he will want when he is older. We will always strive to give him the best.

We would like to thank everyone of you helping to make Tonys life a truly bright one.

    Tony was invited by The Duchess of Cambridge to the Christmas Together Carols at Westminster Abbey in December which resulted in him personally meeting the Duke & Duchess and having a lengthy conversation about how he was doing and his fundraising efforts for other children.

    Happy New Year to you all and thank you for the love & support last year. 2021 was a truly incredible year yet again for Tony, his fundraising total for the Evelina has topped 1.7 million WOW. We also received the backing of the Government for Tonys Law thanks to Dominic Raab & Tom Tugendhat - which will mean tougher sentences for anyone convicted of child cruelty offences, something we have fought for for the last 4 years.

    We are very touched by Tony's sad story but impressed by his spirit. We wish to help him and his parents in the years to come which we are sure will not be straightforward. We think you are amazing!

Tony Hudgell now 6 years old was at 41 days old so horrifically abused by his biological parents that he was left on life support with multiple fractures, sepsis, toxic shock and multi organ failure. Sadly in 2017 his legs were so badly damaged he had to have them amputated.
