Team George - Coming to America

NOTICE : If you have a large amount to donate, upwards of £200 please email James at prior to making your donation. Thank you.

Welcome to the official gofundme page for Team George. If you are donating for a specific fund raiser/event please add the reference,
which you will find below, in your donation comments to show your appreciation for the efforts involved. If you are just touched by George's condition and feeling generous then just hit donate now!!

We have amazingly reached our initial goal of £15,000 in just 3 months, due to the support and dedication of so many. However this is potentially just the tip of the iceberg in terms of medical costs should the US consultants feel they can assist George in his quest for answers, so please do continue to support Team George as we strive for answers to his condition.

Imagine a world where taking a bath results in horrific pain, where you have no taste as you are fed through a tube directly to your heart and where you spend most of your waking hours nervous that you will gain a terrifying infection that could result in yet another prolonged hospital stay.

Imagine for one second that you were 4 year old George Johnson, where this is a daily reality.

About George

George Bertie Johnson is 4 year old super star who has a very rare motility condition. This means that he can't eat or drink and is currently fed directly through his heart. Even though George suffers from constant pain every day, he is always smiling. Team George has been created so that YOU can be a part of the team which is fighting to get George better. George has spent the majority of his life in hospital where specialists at GOSH have been working tirelessly to get him better. Despite this the GOSH team have made little progress and so George's next line of hope lies with a team of consultants in America. Which is why we need to raise more cash!
