Austin Kearley's Therapy Fundraising Page

Thanks for taking the time to visit Austin's JustGiving page.

Most of you are aware that Austin was born with an extremely rare PTEN genetic disorder called Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba Syndrome. This condition means that Austin has, among other things,  severe learning difficulties and is unable to speak. His condition means that while other children of his age are playing, making friends and going to school, Austin is having intense therapy in order to learn and accomplish basic daily tasks – abilities that most of us take for granted. 

Whilst at the Cleveland Clinic in April we were given medical advice that the next 5 years are crucial if Austin is ever going to speak. Once the brain is 10 years old, most children that are non verbal remain this way. We are appealing to everyone who is competing in a charity event this year, or next year, to help us raise money for Austin to give him the best possible chance of speaking. Helping Austin to learn to communicate will the best gift he will ever receive - We can not wait for the day that he says mummy or daddy, tells us he's happy or even has a tantrum! If and when that day comes it will be a miracle.....

So if you are running a 5k or 10k, walking up Machu Pichu or cycling the London to Brighton - please think of our son and our mission to give him a voice. Please use this Justgiving page for your sponsorship and one day hopefully Austin will be able to say thank you. 

We thank you in advance for taking the time to read this appeal.
