Hello! I'd love your help in raising money to buy Luca an iPad for Christmas. Luca has been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and as he get's older and trips to hospital may become more frequent, I believe something to entertain and educate Luca at the same time would be a welcome gift!

It's also a gesture from other humans coming together showing kindness and empathy, a gift to Luca that will be priceless and a lovely lesson to learn so early on in life.

I will be donating, doing events and taking part in Movember raising money for this so hopefully we can present Luca with a lovely Christmas present!

I previously worked with Pedro, Luca's father and when I saw the post on facebook about the fundraising it touched me

Please join me in helping make this Christmas a little better for Luca! 

This is from Pedro's Just Giving page: 

"On February 2nd 2013, Joanne and I were given a new challenge in life. Luca our 3 ½ year old son (our world) was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. At that stage the severity of MD was uncertain. Luca braved a muscle biopsy. On November the 6th 2013 we had the news that Luca is closer to the Duchenne than to Becker, the less severe segment of Muscular dystrophy. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a progressive, muscle wasting condition that causes the muscles to waste and weaken over time. At present there are no treatments or cures for this condition.

At the moment Luca has no idea what his life has in store for him, his purity and innocence’s is like any other child or toddler his age. He runs, jumps, scoots around on his scooter oblivious to it all. But we have been advised by his specialist that when he gets to 5 years of age the symptoms will become more apparent.

Jo and I are appealing to you our friends and family to PLEASE make a donation. My personal appeal to most of you is I would one day like to see my son enjoying life like I did with you all at sports days at school, trips to Kariba going to a school dance, days out at the lake what I am trying to say is I would love for my son to have a childhood and teenage life, with the same wonderful and unforgettable experiences like I did and enjoyed." - https://www.justgiving.com/Pedro-Fernandes/

I look forward to giving Luca this gift from us all.

Many Thanks,

Ben Edgson
