Hey all thanks for visiting.

Many of you know my son, William was due to fligh to America for limb lengthening surgery. After much though and deliberation he has decided that he would rather not go through with the pain. Having been through so much how can I try to change his mind. I have to respect his wishes! 8 years old and 43 surgeries in I’m sure he knows his own mind.

So much effort has been put into the walk that we didn’t want to give up and it seemed only apt that the fundraising continued and we found a worthy cause.

The VACTERL support group keeps us all connected. These children have been through so much and  having a safe place where they can all come together is priceless. They are home when they are together! You can read more about VACTERL here https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/diseases/5443/vacterl-association

The lads have word so very hard to complete this mammoth walk of the west highland way in just 5 short days! Please if you can show them some love and admiration, do.

Your support will help us keep these kids together! Build them up and let them know that anything is possible. You’ll help them be home ❤️ Thank you for reading xx
