Making memories for Ben and Cameron

Hi, We are Ben and Cameron; we are step-brothers and live in Stoneyburn, West Lothian.

We are both 8 years old and have the condition Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

This means our muscles are very weak and we can't do what all our friends can, like climb up stairs, play outside or ride a bike but we both have really cool wheelchairs.

By the time we are about 10, we won't be able to walk at all, and we are not expected to live longer than our teenage years.

However, we are still very happy boys. We love spending time with our Mummy, Daddy and our sisters, Phoebe and Layla.

Since we won't live as long as most people, we want to see as much of the world as possible in the short space of time we have before we will need help with breathing, require surgery and feeding tubes.

We have both been lucky enough to have our wishes granted to visit Florida, Cameron by the Make-a-Wish Foundation and Ben with the Starlight Foundation.

In October 2014 we are going to visit Florida again as our wonderful family all joined together and paid for our trip, as they all know how much we love it.

We both know we are very lucky boys having seen Florida already. However, we both have further dreams and these are what our Mummy and Daddy are fundraising for.

Cameron absolutely adores animals, and his dream is to visit Australia to see real live kangaroos and hopefully spend a night on Kangaroo Island. He would also love to have some "snags" cooked on a BBQ on the beach.

Ben fell in love with Mickey Mouse the moment he saw him and his ultimate dream is to spend Christmas day with Mickey in the Magic Kingdom.

We would like to say thank you very much for reading our story and if you can help us we will be ever so grateful.
