Teo's Knee Surgery to play again.

In September 2017 Teo,my 15 year old son,ruptured his ACL while jumping for a ball. A completely innocuous moment which shattered his season. He is only 15 and a promising rugby player, currently with Harlequinns  Devloping Player Programme, London Oratory A team and Bank of England U-15s. He hasn't played since. We do not have private medical insurance and the cost for a  private operation is beyond us at the moment but more importantly Teo himself wants to try to fund his op. Not playing nearly broke him, causing a slump in his confidence and his desire to return to the game BUT he's dragged himself back. He's exercising to keep his fitness high, he's learning to coach Rugby at a junior level and is also looking to learn how to ref.
He needs a full ACL reconstruction and he really wants to get back soon as he feels he's at a crucial age for his Rugby development. The sooner he can have the op the sooner he can recover and get back to the game.
He's been told that without the operation he can NEVER play again.

The pan is to raise the money for an immediate operation as there is a long wait on the NHS.

His promise is that any money raised that is  not used for the operation will be immediately donated to the RFU Injured Players Foundation.
