Making a Difference 

dylan on this chairThanks to the generous funding of our supporters, we were recently able to fulfil a Dream for 16-year-old Dylan and help purchase a Thera Trainer that will enable him to work out at home!

Thera Trainers are brilliant and help the user to exercise their legs and upper body with or without motorised assistance. This will facilitate functional recovery and improved motor skills, and help Dylan to achieve his therapy goals.

Dylan was very excited to try out the machine for a workout. It had arrived earlier, but as Dylan had been in hospital to have botox injections in his legs and had a day off from school to recover from the general anesthetic, his parents set it up in time for him to use a few days later once he was able to.

We are grateful to be able to help Dreams like this come true thanks to your support raising vital funds for us and seeing how much of a difference it makes to the children and young adults we support and of course, their families, friends, and carers.


A thank you message from Dylan’s parents

Mark and I are thrilled that Dreams Come True have funded this machine for Dylan. Dylan will use the trainer every night between now and his operation in the summer to ensure that his blood circulation improves before surgery. This will make a huge difference to Dylan, not only for his forthcoming surgery but for his future health and wellbeing also." - Dylan's Parents
