Cast of Emmerdale Raise Money for Felix

The cast and crew of Emmerdale are playing local football team, FelixTown FC, on Saturday 24 June 2017 at the Harrogate Town stadium on Wetherby Road Harrogate.

The event is to raise money for Felix Williams, aged 5-years-old and is to help pay for treatment for an undiagnosed progressive neurological condition.

Tickets can be bought in advance at https://www.tickettailor.com/checkout/view-event/id/99954/chk/ef31

Felix is 5-years-old and has an undiagnosed progressive neurological condition.  He is unable to sit independently and is non-mobile.  He has hypertonia, developmental delay, dystonia, hypermobility, epilepsy, dysarthria, cerebral visual impairment and damage within his brain, not caused by any problems at birth.

Felix was born past his due date and everything went well, with a home water birth.  The problems started with 14 hours of crying every day, Felix couldn’t turn his head one way and feeding was very difficult.  He slumped in every chair he sat in.  Felix then missed every milestone and no one could explain why.

He had MRI’s, lumbar punctures, muscle biopsies.  We saw a pediatrician, neurologist, physio, OT, speech and language, dietician, geneticist, growth specialist and no one had a clue – Felix doesn’t fit into any box.
