Just4Children wish to raise funds to enable Carter have an amazing quality of life by accessing the therapy and equipment he needs.
This is Carter, he is 18 months old and has a twin brother called Benton. Carter is the strongest person I know and makes me unbelievably proud that he’s my son.
The boys were born 6 weeks early when I went into spontaneous labour. It was only picked up at birth that they had twin to twin transfusion syndrome.
Benton was bright red and Carter deathly white. Carter was whisked away from us as he wasn’t breathing and his organs were shutting down. After 3 minutes he took his first breath. Carter spent 9 weeks in hospital on various types of oxygen and had problems with all of his organs. He came home on oxygen and with a ng tube for feeding.
He has overcome all the organ problems and they are working how they should be.
At 3 days old it was confirmed Carter had a stroke and at 6 weeks it was confirmed he has pvl brain damage. Carter has also been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and low muscle tone. He is just learning to sit and crawl thanks to the therapy he has on a weekly basis.
We thank you for your support.
