Hi to all,

This page is dedicated to raising awarness and funds towards the cost of treating our son Ellis who is suffering from Plagiocephalya and  Brachycephaly.

He had his first appointment today with the Ossur group and it is discovered that he has a misalignment of 20mm, which is quite severe. 

We are going ahead with the treatment, it is not cheap but we think Ellis needs to have the same start to his small life as all our other children have had.

We would be gratfefull for any donations that any one can make no matter how large or how small.

A heart warming thing happenend when we were at the clinic today. I was chatting to a couple who's son had been in the cranial helmet for some months, asking them about how the child copes,how they managed finanicially etc, on the way through to my appointment I met the couple again who told me that they had held a fundraiser for their child and made an extra £300.00 which they would like to donate to Ellis to get him started. We were truly touched by the generosity of this couple who we had just met, I would just like to say a massive thank you to the couple from ourselves and from Ellis.

Thank you for reading this page

Pam, George and Ellis
