If you've ever had the chance to meet Cameron, you know he is a kind and loving young man who is truly loved by everyone. He is always the life and soul of the party with a great sense of humour and a personality to match.
Two years ago Cameron was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Friedreich's Ataxia. He had just completed his GCSE's and was living a normal life as a 16 year old, albeit a bit wobbly and fatigued. He even managed to get himself an award at his school leavers assembly for being 'Mr Bump' (hence the nickname 'spaghetti legs'). We now know the reason why he was so clumsy.
Friedreich's Ataxia is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder which affects 1 in 50,000 people and there is no cure. Symptoms include unsteady posture, scoliosis of the spine, frequent falling, difficulty walking, slurred speech, diabetes and a heart defect.
Cameron is battling this awful condition daily with so much strength and determination. He never gives up and even the bad days he overcomes with his fantastic sense of humour. He is still very independent and is doing all he can to live a normal life but getting around is becoming more and more difficult. He is in desperate need of a wheelchair that suits he's specific needs. As a family we want Cameron to be able to live his life independently.
We are asking for your help to raise money so Cameron can get the best wheelchair to be able to live his best life.
Any donations are gratefully received and as a family we want to thank you all for the love and support you have given Cameron.
