Marc's 1st step to walking

Marcus is now 8 years old. He is a twin. 
This picture, on the profile, was taken on his first walk to the corner shop. I’m sure you will agree- he loved it!

Marcus cannot walk independently but is an incredibly brave little boy.

After years of surgeries, equipment, walking frames and wheelchairs, Marcus has grown into a very strong solider. 
This year Marcus has been accepted for life changing surgery in the UK: Selective dorsal rhizotomy for spasticity in cerebral palsy at Great Ormond Street Hospital:

What a breakthrough! Not only for him but for his brother too.

The surgery is funded. Pre & Post op funds are being debated.

Marcus will remain in London for approx. 1-2 month whilst he recovers.

As a family we really need some funds to support us all whilst we live in London for that time, while Marcus has this procedure. 

We currently live 50miles away from London and with the funds we raise, we will be able to be with Marcus every day.

Marcus will need additional clothing, shoes and equipment throughout the procedure and afterwards. 

Every single penny will help us all through this frightening, yet moving time of our lives as parents.

Marcus is currently an Orange Belt in Karate- lets help him get to Black belt, so he can kick Cerebral Palsy up the bum!  

From the bottom of my heart- Thank You xXx
