Chest brace for Jayden

Hello I'm Jayden's mum Rachael Hyland, since Jayden was a baby we have dealt with lots of health issues with a kidney disease and he's not had an easy time with hospital stays and lots of physio therapy. Jayden's Kidneys leak electrolytes so he's body is always very weak and he's struggled to build muscle mass. On top of this condition which already has knocked he's confidence because he's very thin, during puberty he start to get this very deformed chest (pectus caranitum). It's completely ruined he's teenage years as he wears layers of clothes and he hunches over to hide it. Holidays,swimming and the summer are all very distressing for him. We had an appointment with a surgeon at the brompton hospital who offered us free surgery on the NHS which would intale Jayden having 3 large scars and having all he's ribs broke and having metal plates put in. Which would be a long and painful healing process. We refused and had to just go on with no hope he could just feel normal and confident like other boys he's age. Until I found a great Docter named Dr Hunt and he's offered us a great solution of a chest brace, but the U.K. Don't use this method as it's more well known in the U.S and the NHS don't do this procedure and not willing to help. As Jayden is turning 15 the peak for best results are at 14. Because when he turns 16 the process is longer. The cost of the treatment is £2310 with at least two follow up appointments of £240. As he's at the best age I'm in a big hurry to give him this chance to be fixed so he won't have to go through the pain of major surgery. Hope you can all help. I'd be so greatful.
