Cheryl Farthing’s 15-year-old son, Charlie, has Down Syndrome and a very rare genetic disorder called pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy. A complication during an emergency bowel surgery at 10 months old meant he has had to be tube fed for the majority of his life.
The Farthing family received $1,610.00 to help fund Netcoaching that will help introduce Charlie to solid foods.
Now a growing teenager it is important Charlie can get all the nutrients he needs; the coaching will give Charlie more freedom and integration into everyday life.
