Brandon's Dream

My Story

Brandon is a ten-year-old boy with a muscle wasting disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This means that although he can walk and move around like a normal ten-year-old at the moment this will sadly not be the case in the future. This illness takes away all of your mobility and he is unlikely to survive into his twenties. Brandon is already struggling significantly with his mobility and tires easily so playing with his brothers and sisters is getting increasingly harder. He also has severe anxiety and as a result of this cannot attend school so has to have home tuition.
Brandon has always wanted to travel to the other side of the world and he knows that when he gets older this will become increasingly difficult, if not impossible. Brandon's Mom sent an application to us to see if we could make his dream of going to Australia a reality. In his application his Mom said that he loves being outside in the sunshine, he also loves swimming and would love to travel and go on a big adventure! As the family have to make huge sacrifices and compromises for Brandon's illness, they wanted a holiday they could all go on and have a trip to remember. With the help and support of people like you we can make this dream happen for Brandon.
