A year ago our mum was diagnosed with a rare neurodegenerative condition called Huntington's Disease for which there currently is no treatment or cure...
After going through the counselling process and eventually on to genetic testing we found out that our brother is also effected by Huntington's.
We don't know when the symptoms will start to develop, but they will. It could be next year, or up to 20 years down the line.
We want to raise money for him to go travelling and make the most of life he has at the moment.
He wants to travel around Europe and we've always talked about going to America, so we want to make his dreams come true.
He was talking to us about saving up money, so he doesn't know we've started this fund raising page.
We would love to raise a substantial amount to be able to give to him in a lump sum so he'll have an amazing surprise.
We don't want him dwelling on the thought of the future, we want him to make the most of the present and not have financial restrictions stopping him carrying out his dreams.
Any donation you can spare will be fantastic.
