Soccer dreams

. His name is Nathaniel, and he is very excited about going to Manchester City soccer camp in  Manchester United Kingdom.  It's a two weeks (June 28-July 05 2020) residential training camp that will enhance his soccer skills to fulfil his dream. This 14 year old was born as a premature baby. Nathaniel was born with many complications, even lost him a few times in the first 3 months.  At four months he did surgery on one of his testicles because one was still in his stomach.  Nathaniel was diagnosed with Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD) and Hemihypertrophy (genetic disorder, where one side of his body is larger than the other). At 18 months he had another surgery done to remove his adenoids and tubes inserted in both ear.  During this surgery he stopped breathing and code Blue.  He was rushed to Atlanta children's hospital and was help overnight. He was always interested in soccer since age 3 but I kept avoiding it because I was scared that he wouldn't be able to keep up with the other players. There is a 2 1/2 inches height difference between his legs.  Eventually at age 9 I gave it a try. He joined a soccer team.  He is not the best player but his is good.  He is had knee surgery done less than a year ago to stop the growth in the longer leg and in two years they will do another surgery. He's dream is to be a great soccer player and my dream is to see his dream come through.  With that being said I would love your help to make this young man dream come thru.   Thank you for support in advance,
