Help Thomas Find Freedom

In 2009 at the age of 3 our only son Thomas was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  This is a debilitating disease which is life limiting and will see Thomas progressively get weaker and weaker and go from a manual wheelchair to  a motorised wheelchair in October this year.

Thomas has always been an independent boy who loved going to the movies, playing with friends at school and family outings on the weekends.
We are endeavouring to raise  $30,000 towards the cost of a vehicle that can then be modified to fit his motorised wheelchair.

The vehicle (Volkswagen Caddy- Trendline Maxi ) costs $37,000 and the modifications have been quoted at $38,090. 

Thomas would like to be able to have the freedom to visit family and friends, go to the movies or NRL and the freedom to explore the world through his own eyes.

We have currently raised approximately $8000 ourselves but need your help!!

Hence, I am asking all of you if you would  kindly donate to my sons go fund me page, your donations will enable our family to provide Thomas with all the love and support we can and the freedom to grow into a young man.

Thankyou for taking the time to read this page.

With the help of teachers and support staff Thomas competed in the school sports carnival winning a third place ribbon!!!!
