Meet Matthew, he lives in Bude with his family and looks like your typical 10year old. However, Matthew is a very special lad. When he was five and a half months old he got meningococcal septicemia. He was incredibly poorly and nearly died but luckily Matthew is a true fighter and bravely fought for his life and won! His recovery was a slow and steady one that is such a blessing however as he got older it was clear that the disease had left him with an acquired brain injury causing him to have learning difficulties, speech and language problems, behavioral problems and sensory processing disorder. He has no danger awareness and is constantly seeking sensory stimulation. Matthew is in need of a sensory room in his home to help with his day to day recovery and this is where you can help.
