As a mother I never imagined a day that I would be raising money for one of my children to have surgery.
My three year old son Hunter has obstructive sleep apnea caused by extremely large tonsils.
We are raising money so Hunter can have a
tonsillectomy privately after waiting over a year now for appointments with our overstretched NHS (which we are grateful for).
Watching our son struggling and stopping breathing throughout the night has been all of our lives for over a year now.
My heart is truly breaking that after all this time he’s still not able to live a high quality of life.
I have listed below some affects of obstructive sleep apnea below:
- weight loss
- cognitive delays
- heart problems
- high blood pressure
- struggling to thrive socially
- choking on food
I understand that it’s just been christmas but honestly we are at our wits end and just want our son to be able to sleep again.
Please help us to reach our target, no matter how small it all makes a difference.
I have attached a youtube video of Hunter whilst he’s asleep. This may be distressing to watch.
Thank you ❤️
