As most of you will know on 15th August 2016, our son Emerson Grant was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst on his spine this resulted in him becoming paralysed, diagnosed with – A spinal cord injury – Tetraplegia incomplete.

So our new journey had begun.

We spent the following months in a number of hospitals stabilising Emerson and getting to grips with his new baseline.

We didn’t realise at the time just how many times we would visit them forever revolving doors, just how many sleepless nights we would spend watching, hoping, praying and just how many additional complications were to come with life after a spinal cord injury.

We also didn’t realise just how much we would need to rely on charitable support, having to rely on one income but with so much additional costs to bare, family, family friends, friends, and friends of friends, local and from afar in fact all points of the globe have come together to support our journey, it’s truly been amazing and without your support we wouldn’t be where we are today.

However, our daily hurdles continue, and we are challenged every day to face each battle full on for our #braveboy. He shows such determination in his daily trials, all with a smile on his face, defying the professionals who say “to young for that sir”!!!

We choose today 11th November 2017 launch The 300 Challenge because this is the day we were discharged from hospital. The day our life’s began living with a child with a Spinal Cord Injury.

We need your help!

We need 100 people, businesses or groups to help us achieve our spring board for 2018.

Whilst the ever emerging cyst has held us back over the last 12 months, we now need to ensure Emerson’s strength and progress is maintained, so that he has the best chance of recovery after his future surgeries.

We have two goals – the purchase of a FES bike and the funding of specialist therapy in America.

These are both beyond the £10k target of The 300 Challenge, however we plan to use this as a foundation to kick start the fundraising and raise more funds through the early part of 2018.

So here it is, as simple as it gets:
The 300 Challenge
We need 100 People
To raise £100 each
In 100 days

So get your buckets out, Christmas carols anyone, how about getting your local butcher involved, Coffee and Christmas cake morning or how about just getting a fiver off 20 of your mates.

We find it strange being the other side of the charity bucket, we’ve always been givers, not receivers, times change and we now have to step up to the plate, everyone has been truly amazing and we are so blessed to have so much support and love around us.
