Freddy’s Fight For Life
A few weeks ago, it came to our attention that there was a young boy, living within our community that needed some help. Freddy, who is 4 years old, has a very rare, life threatening heart condition and needs some pretty intense specialist treatment to remove a cardiac tumour from his left ventricle. Unfortunately, such treatment is hard to come by in the UK and Freddy’s family are trying to raise £90,000 to take him to Boston Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts for an operation that will change his life forever.
Here at Sedgemoor FM, we want to do everything we can to help young Freddy get to Boston and return to living life as a normal cheeky 4 year old. So, we ran a live 27 hour radio marathon, hosted by the great Dave Englefield. With plenty of ridiculous games, special guests and live performances. Hopefully, we’ve helped Freddy begin his journey to good health.
There’s still time to donate, and you can find out a little more about Freddy’s Fight For Life click here.
