Damon suffered a cerebral fat embolism after he broke his leg in a motor bike accident in 2015. Leaving him in hospital after his accident with just a broken leg and all else was fine was hard but then to receive a phone call saying things have gone down hill with him being put into a coma and on full life support was heart breaking enough. The fats from his broken bone had leaked and attacked his brain shutting it down (very rare to happen). Damon is brain damaged from this and cannot walk. He has just started saying a few words but movement is very limited. We would like to purchase equipment to enable us to take him off for days out. Ashley his brother will be doing a skydive on Damon's birthday 03.06.17 to raise funds to help towards this. This in turn will help us to help Damon enjoy his life as it is at the moment taking him to places he loves, seaside and having equipment to hoist him even going to visit friends when ramps are needed is helping to improve Damon's quality of life. Seeing damon as he is breaks our hearts because he is so young and had his life and dreams ahead of him but yet he still has the most amazing smile and his personality and attitude. He does understand you when you talk to him he is an absolute star. I have given up work to become his fulltime carer which I think any mother would of done it's heart breaking at times but worth every minute. He has been home for 6 months now after spending time in hospital and 2 rehabilitation centres (16months in total). Please help us raise funds dosent matter how small the donation everything will be very much appreciated and thank you from us all.
