Event description

Description

Charlie is a 5yr old boy born with Hyper IgM syndrome, currently only a hand full of children in the UK suffers with this disease.

Charlies body doesn’t produce antibodies which leaves his respiratory and digestive systems unprotected against infection, since Charlie was only a few months old he's received fortnightly infusions of antibodies as well as other medication taken daily one of which is Antibiotics and due to the high dosage, this unfortunately has an effect on his liver,

Life for Charlie is so different to that of his friends. Even the bacteria in a simple glass of tap water are dangerous for Charlie, everything he eats and drinks have to be processed and sterilised.

Last Autumn Charlie’s white blood cell count dropped so much so that he's just been given a bone marrow transplant. Charlies Body is reacting well to the transplant but he still has a very long way to go.

As you can imagine, when the results came back that Charlie was going to need a transplant the search for a donner began, and a 19 year old girl from Germany was a suitable match. All of the family and everyone that knows Charlie are eternally grateful for her special gift.

A week before Christmas 2016, as the family were getting ready for Christmas, Charlies dad received the devastating news that he had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, so now they also had this awful disease to fight too.

Charlie and his family have to regularly travel to Great Ormond street hospital, the Family receive very little funding to help with this and with lots of overnight accommodation also required as you can imagine this has a massive financial impact on the family.

I could keep writing and telling you the story of this brave family, hopefully i have written enough for you to see and understand why we need to raise as much as we can to help with some of the expenses, Charlie needs his parents around him as much as possible and Martin needs to focus on getting better so even if we raise enough for a months’ worth of Travel expenses that's a month of less financial pressure and more focus on each other.
