Just4Children need to raise funds to help Sammy have treatment for his skin condition which is not available on the NHS, as its only available in France.
Sam is a friendly boy aged 9 from Crewe, who suffers all the time, but will happily join in with anyone. He is self conscious about his skin, even though we repeatedly tell him that people understand and know why and what it is. But even so, it does affect him more than people may think.
He is constantly scratching, all day and all night. This interrupts his sleep, which in turn makes him tired during the day. Being tired in the evening times, does sometimes make him moody and easily irritated which obviously impacts on the whole family.
He suffers particularly during hot weather as sweat makes his skin sting, which in turn makes him scratch. All the doctors here say is, “More cream, more cream!”
His doctor recently diagnosed Sam with “Plantar Fasciitis” which is more than likely caused by the way he is walking due to the eczema on his ankles.
The Avène Hydrotherapy Center in the south of France is entirely dedicated to dermatology and the treatment of skin conditions such as Sam’s. It offers the most modern medical equipment combined with the world-renowned quality and efficiency of its thermal water.
Please help us to support Sam!
