My story

[p]On [b]26th August 2012[/b] at 1pm I shall be having [b]my head shaved[/b] for charity. This page is for you to sponsor me for doing so.[/p] [p][b]Why ? I hear you cry.[/b][/p] [p]My little boy Grayson was born different than most children, but when you look at him you can't tell, Grayson by definition is a SWAN - SWAN is a term given to Children/Adults who have "a Syndrome Without A Name" Grayson has brain damage, severe Global Developmental Delay and is physically and mentally disabled.[/p] [p]You won't probably of heard of many children like Grayson who don't have a diagnosis they are rare, they are not publicised about as they don't have a "fashionable" condition, this doesn't make them less important and worthy of support and treatment but unfortunately more often than not this is what happens.[/p] [p][b]SWAN UK[/b] is a charity without any government funding set up by the Genetic Alliance to give families like us a voice and to have support for our special babies.[/p] [p]In the past 6 months they have helped my family and Grayson a great deal, supporting us with help/information, introducing us to families in our situations, sending support/love in tough times and I would be lost without them.[/p] [p][b]Cerebra[/b] our 2nd charity helps Children like Grayson with brain related injuries. Cerebra is a unique charity set up to help improve the lives of children with brain related conditions through research, education and directly supporting the children and their carers. They do not receive any help from the government and rely entirely on the generosity of their supporters.[/p] [p]As well as shaving my head for the 2 charities above my hair is also being donated to Little Princess Trust to make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer. [url=http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/default.aspx]http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/default.aspx[/url][/p] [p]The shaving of my head will take place at a funday event I am organising to be held in Canterbury in Kent, we would hope many of you can come join in on the fun of bouncy castles/raffles/food and drinks and much much more.[/p] [p]It would be great to show the world how fantastic[b] SWAN[/b] and [b]Cerebra[/b] are and the way they have helped change our lives and many many more.[/p] [p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
