I was born in Hope Hospital Salford on 17th December 2006.
My Mummy is called Joanne and my daddy is called Lee, I have a little doggy called Toodles. I have a very big extended family who all love me very much. I go to school and I love Mickey Mouse, Video games and WWE Wrestler John Cena and support Manchester City. So why am I so special that all of you want to help me and children like me?
Well when I was a tiny baby the doctors told my mummy and daddy that I have Niemann Pick type c, and it’s very rare and less than 100 people in the UK have it. That’s why I can no longer talk, why I cannot learn to read or write, why I cannot dress myself, go to the toilet and one day I will not be able to walk, see or hear. If I ever grow up I would like to be a wrestler like John Cena, or maybe a chef like my daddy, but at the moment there is no cure for my illness and the doctors are trying really hard to find a cure to save me!!!
after 5 months if intensive tests i was diagnosed with Niemann pick Type C, this is neurological illness that is life limiting and is a very rare disease, life expectancy 10 / 15 years of age, those affected will usually develop dementia as a symptom of the disease. There are less than a 100 children diagnosed with this condition in the UK and less than a 1000 worldwide Because of this there is NO Government funding. We need to raise awareness & funds for research into the FATAL condition & we need YOUR help. Please help us by fundraising for our cause, taking part in the events we organise, making a donation online or raising awareness of Lleyton's condition. Please follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook to spead the word and join us on our journey of hope.
