Support Heel & Toe Children’s Charity
Jake cannot walk, cannot talk, and cannot play like other little boys his own age. He is fully dependent on adults to care for his every need. Jake requires lots of daily exercises and stretching to help keep him moving and stop his muscles from tightening. He does sitting exercises in a bid to help him sit independently and to try to help him hold his head in place.
Attending Heel and Toe has given Jake and his family more confidence. Jake loves being the centre of attention and being made a fuss of. He loves being around people, singing songs and interacting, and as a family they love to travel and show Jake new things, seeing and experiencing as much as possible.
