Help BACK Harry & family for VBT Surgery in USA

Hi everyone,  Many thanks for taking time to read this post. My name is Michelle. I am a close friend of the family of this superhero above! His name is Harry, he is 10 years old and is really good friends with my Son. Harry was diagnosed with early onset scoliosis, when he was 8 years old. He was lucky enough that the curve in his spine remained stable up until July last year. But within 6 months it went from 35 degrees to 42 degrees . His consultant feels he is an ideal candidate for VBT scoliosis surgery, which is performed in the USA, Philidelphia, but this comes at a considerable cost to Harry's family... the surgery itself is covered by Shriners in Philadelphia but we need to raise funds for flights, accommodation, living expenses, pre op and follow up appointments for a possible 2 month stay for Harry, his Mum & Dad and also their youngest son Sam who is 7. As you can imagine this is an awful lot to take in for Harrys parents, and his amazing supportive family, and they are in a race against time as the earlier it can be done the better the outcome should hopefully be for Harry. Harry & his family are a local family in Fleet, Hampshire.  He loves sports and plays for a local football team, which he absolutely loves. I can honestly say that this young man is the most kind hearted, well mannered boy, who has been a great friend to my son since infant school.  And so it is my turn now to try and help get the superhero Harry to the USA with his wonderful family for this huge operation. I along with Harry's family will post regular updates as to his progress! Heartfelt thanks to anyone who can help in anyway, no matter how big or small your contribution may be! Michelle xxx
