Thank you

Adam is absolutely delighted with his quilt! He thinks it is such a great idea when I explained what you do and he is amazed that the squares have come from so many different places. I have attached a couple of photos but hope to take some more today as the light was not great after school!

Thank you so much and to all the ladies who contributed squares and assembled the quilt. It's a wonderful thing that you do with no return other than to see the happy faces of the children who receive them, it's wonderful.

Biography

Adam was born in 2005 and for his first few years progressed like any other child, he walked a little late but still 'within the normal range', it wasn't until he started school that it became apparent that something was not right.

He had always been a clumsy child - prone to falls and constantly had bruised shins but everyone simply put it down to taking after his Mum who is notoriously accident-prone!

His reception class teacher though quickly realised that Adam was significantly behind the rest of his class physically and a referral was made. A diagnosis of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy quickly followed, which was absolutely devastating.

Since then we have had frequent hospital visits for muscle clinic, heart scans, bone scans and numerous blood tests - the worst bit for Adam as he hates needles!

Adam is still walking which is unusual for a boy of his age with Duchenne, though he uses a wheelchair for longer distances and days out.

He is a loving, kind and sensitive boy who has taken everything life has thrown at him with a smile on his face. Unfortunately the future for Adam holds many obstacles and difficulties so we want him to enjoy life as much as he can.
