We will be donating 10% of all funds raised to charitable causes
This is Freddy Vallender, from Somerset, UK. Freddy has an extremely rare heart condition.
His parents are trying to raise the money to pay for surgery in the United States. Freddy is one of only seven children in the UK to suffer with a cardiac tumour, which causes dangerous heart arrhythmias which make his heart beat in excess of 200 beats per minute and could lead to sudden death by him going into cardiac arrest.
Freddy is now four and has been battling this horrible condition since his first cardiac arrest at four months old. He has already had three heart surgeries and has a defibrillator planted in his tummy. The only long term solution for Freddy is to have the fibroma removed by surgery, which is not available in the UK. His parents are hoping to raise £100,000 so that he can have this operation at the Boston Children's Hospital.
Joe has known Andy, Freddy's father, for over 20 years and on hearing of Freddy's condition we wanted to do something to help. We will donate £15,000 to his appeal fund on successfully reaching our target or one third of 10% of funds raised if we do not meet our target.
