In a whirlwind of 4 months and 4 days that Harry’s site has been up and running we have hit our target of £60,000 our family are utterly amazed in the generosity of so many people in such a short time. If you are reading this and you have donated or helped in anyway to our son to our grandson to our brother or to our nephew’s cause then you have started a new journey in Harry’s life. We now as a family will now do all we can to ensure harry will fulfill his potential and the hard work will start from the moment Harry leaves that operating table on the 1st of November 2011 in a different country from which he was born. We as a family are under no illusion that this is a quick fix and we will have to work Harry hard and put him through strenuous physio and therapy regimes for years to come that most 3 year olds would never have to encounter, their will be tears and upset from Harry and from ourselves but it will be worth it to see our precious son slowly take the small steps to a better future. Words are not enough and thank you seems such a small return to all you people that have helped supported and dug deep into your pockets we owe so many people a debt of gratitude and i owe my partner Shane my rock our children my Mum and Dad and my Sister Nicci and her family so much for their support and hard work and understanding. We love you all and all of you take care of the people that mean so much to you xxx

Hello from Cary, North Carolina USA. My daughter had her SDR at St.Louis in March 2009 & we met the Ford family from England whose son, Henry, had his SDR the same day as Caroline. Caroline still does PT twice a week and we are looking at some ortho “bone” surgery possibly this year to correct her thighs turning in-ward but NO regrets for doing SDR at St.Louis. They are so professional and have this procedure down to a science…there is a Ronald McDonald floor at the hospital with a kitchen, washer/dryers, TV room which was a nice place to take a break from the hospital room. Good luck to you—you are in our prayers! -Pam Garrett
