Below are some highlights and updates about George's journey and you can follow him and his achievements on Facebook Cure4George and George's Journey

  • George continues to enjoy swimming, cycling and Karate recently attaining his orange belt

  • Sunnymede School have had a stair lift fitted to assist George in climbing the internal steps between the hall and classrooms as he finds this very difficult when moving around

  • George is awaiting a powered wheelchair on order, to help him be more mobile and independent when on longer walks and for when he gets tired

  • Our family are trying to move house this year in order to provide George with a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, as our current home has been confirmed as unadaptable for George’s future needs

  • Kerry (George’s mum) attended the yearly Action Duchenne Conference in Birmingham to find out more information and to help us as a family manage this journey better. She met some of the other Duchenne parents who help each other with similar experiences. Harry Hill is a the patron of Action Duchenne and is hoping to set up a top comedians show in 2018 to raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

  • Kerry visited a Duchenne laboratory in Oxford (with Action Duchenne) where scientists are working hard to find a cure/treatments for DMD. A truly amazing experience, and the scientists now have a picture up of George in the lab now as a boy to help with a cure!

  • Our family got to meet the Prime Minister inside No.10 Downing St, after being invited to the turning on of the Christmas Lights with the help of "Wipe away the Tears" charity who have helped in funding a high/low riser for George’s powered wheelchair
