Story

Hey Everyone, This is my mate Joshua. Joshua has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, despite his condition he is the most positive and happy person you will ever meet. He is in constant pain with his back but he will never tell you that. He really is an inspiration to us all he just gets on with life and enjoys it to the full.... i don't want dwell on his condition but rather focus on what a great kid he is........ firstly obsessed with politics hence the Trump fancy dress FYI don't get into a political debate with him as you will lose he is ridiculously smart and makes me feel like i need to start school all over again. A lover of Soap operas and a massive fan of Kym Marsh.... Kym if your reading he would love to meet you ( obviously i would need to come with him... Joshua could go and meet the rest of the cast and we could go for a bottle wine? i'm getting off piste we will sort it on the day ) and due to his love of soaps he has developed a love of gossip, his hearing is better than bt wifi.....easy picks up a signal through 6 walls. So why the fundraise? He is 16, due to start college in september to study Business, He is due for two surgeries, 1- to have his spine fixed and 2 - to possibly have brain surgery to stop his rapid muscle movements. As you can imagine Joshua needs care, but after the surgery he will be able to control his own chair and give him independence, which as a young man you can imagine would be incredible. Sadly the kind of chair Joshua needs is not available on the Nhs, so i will be doing my bit to raise as much money as we can in order to get the chair he needs which is around £10,000 but amongst other fundraisers from family and friends i'm hopeful we can get there. I'm extremely grateful for any donations big or small and please if you don't mind could you share this page on your facebook feed. Many thanks in advance.
