Aged 3 years old, Harry had a Polio Like Illness which caused paralysis in both of his legs. He is currently 13 years of age and he is a full time wheelchair user. We are fundraising towards a unique leg bracing system made of carbon fibre, which will be fitted by an Orthotist called Maraduke Loke who is based in San Diego. The first part of the process is taking place in Auckland, after that Harry will be traveling to San Diego to get fitted with the braces. This unique bracing system will enable Harry to stand and walk in the correct alignment, therefore preventing damage to his lower limbs and spine, importantly reducing the risk of future surgery.

Vicki Randall's involvement (page creator)

I am Harry's Mum, raising funds towards the cost of Carbon Fibre Dynamic Braces, which can only be made in San Diego. This bracing system will help Harry to stand and walk, providing the correct alignment for his feet, legs and spine.

Use of funds

The funds will pay for the cost of the braces and the fitting process.

It's just over a year since we returned from California equipped with Harry's leg braces. Here he is during the COVID-19 lockdown preparing a family meal of lasagne. Harry continues to wear the braces on a daily basis, his level of independence and confidence continues to grow. Thanks so much everyone for the donations, it means a lot.
