Seven-year-old Tomas has cerebral palsy, is almost totally blind and has epilepsy as well as global learning difficulties.
He needs constant care and several types of therapy, including physiotherapy, visual stimulation and speech therapy.
Thanks to this and to his parents’ efforts, he has already done much more than doctors could have ever imagined, and can now walk short distances with help, express certain things in Spanish and English and see things which are within a metre on his right side.
He is a happy and loving little boy who constantly wants to learn new things.
All money raised for the Tomas Leighton Care Charity is spent on Tomas’s daily care and therapies, and anything left over is put aside for future stem cell treatment which could improve his sight and in turn his quality of life.
