Tommy for Thomas

Thomas lives near Garstang, Lancashire. He likes swimming, singing and reading books. He is funny, brave and a fantastic little boy!

Thomas was born ten weeks early in September 2011. During labour or after his birth, Thomas suffered bilateral periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), a type of brain damage from a hypoxic event. Thomas has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. He has stiffness (increased tone) in all four limbs and poor core stability (low tone). He cannot roll, sit or walk independently. Physiotherapy is important for Thomas to increase his strength and stamina so that he can learn to move to the best of his ability. Thomas’ family want to raise money to be able to provide him with as many opportunities as possible to complement his physiotherapy. They want to take Thomas to the Bobath Centre in London every four to six months. Furthermore, his family need equipment to aid and encourage his independence.

Please help the family achieve their goals for Thomas. He deserves it. He works hard every day and is very determined. With support and encouragement, there is no limit to what he could achieve.
