Just4Children are hoping to help the Gunby Twins reach their full potential by raising money for therapy and equipment to give them the best life they possibly could have.

Ronnie and Rory are our 1 year old twin baby boys from Loughborough born 8 weeks premature. Their journey for a diagnosis started April 2021 when we noticed that things weren’t quite right. Fast forward past months of hospital appointments for different tests and an MRI scan, we received the news from the twin’s consultant, words that haunt us, ‘You have not been imagining that things are not quite right with your babies, and today I am giving you the reason why things aren’t quite right. Unfortunately, they have a neonatal brain injury’.

Shortly after this it was confirmed that both twins have Cerebral Palsy caused by HIE and they also have Cerebral Visual Impairment, meaning they are unable to connect their brain with their eyes to see properly and therefor surgery/glasses are unable to help them.

The twin’s futures are currently unknown which is very daunting to us. However, we know we need to give them the best life and the life they truly deserve. We would love to help Ronnie and Rory reach their full potential and we understand from health professionals early intervention is key for them.

We would love to raise money for Just4Children to allow our twin boys to have therapy sessions including courses at the Bobath Centre, funding for treatment and future operations that may be required, special needs equipment and toys which will hopefully help them interact, engage and help achieve milestones sooner. In the future we will also need to look at altering our family home to be more suitable for our twin boys so it meets their needs.

We cannot thank you enough for your support, love and donations (no matter how big or small that is). We hope to give Ronnie and Rory the best life so they can reach their full potential and prove to us there is positivity in all of this!

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. It really does mean the world to us and I am more than sure Ronnie and Rory will repay you all in life with endless smiles.
