My story

[p]Nathan’s Extravaganza is a charity dinner and disco raising funds for The Sick Children’s Trust, The J’s Hospice and Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust. These charities have all supported my family since my son Nathan was born.[/p] [p][/p] [p]Nathan’s problems became apparent shortly after he was born. At four days old he was transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital after struggling to breathe. There he was diagnosed with Patent Ductus, which was causing his breathing problems but more seriously a bleed to the brain, which developed into Hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain). Following surgery to insert a shunt the Hydrocephalus was brought under control, but as Nathan grew, it became evident that development milestones were not being met.[/p] [p][/p] [p]As the years passed, more of Nathan’s condition emerged. He was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Worster-Drought Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Scoliosis. Nathan has only one functional kidney and a rare chromosome genetic condition, which have all come together to cause Nathan’s brave struggle.[/p] [p][/p] [p]Addenbrooke’s Hospital have been there on a number of occasions following shunt failure and fitting a new one each time. Recently his Scoliosis became more serious and required surgery,  Addenbrooke’s stepped in to provide the corrective surgery, along with The Sick Children’s Trust, which provided ‘Home from Home’ accommodation and parental support while Nathan is in hospital. Throughout all of this, The J’s Hospice has been the foundation that supported both Nathan and his parents. By providing Nathan with an outlet away from home life and good solid advice for his parents. Nathan’s condition is for life but with the knowledge that Addenbrooke’s Hospital are there to meet his medical needs and charities such as The Sick Children’s Trust and The J’s Hospice meeting the day-to-day and emotional support, his future can be met with confidence.[/p] [p][/p] [p]Nathan’s Extravaganza will consist of a drinks reception, two course hot buffet dinner, 80’s themed disco and an exciting live auction and raffle.[/p][p]Dress Code: Lounge Suits and Dresses[/p][p] Tickets are £35 per person or £350 (for a table of 10.) Please put your name and numbers of tickets you are buying in the comments box when you make your payment.  For more information or any questions please email [/p][p]nathan.extravaganza@gmail.com[/p]
