Jonjo's Story

Variety – the Children’s Charity was pleased to be able to provide a special Breezi chair for a 2½ year old delightful little boy. Jonjo was born prematurely, weighing only 3lbs at birth and spent the first six months of his life with his Mum and Dad in the Special Care Baby Unit at Southampton General Hospital. 

During this time he underwent surgery shortly after birth, many complete blood transfusions and at times his life was in the balance. But this little one is obviously a fighter and despite all the highs and lows he pulled through. Unfortunately he still has many health challenges. He has Cerebral Palsy and a condition called Congenital Cytomegolovirus as well as feeding issues. He has to have extensive physiotherapy along with other treatments, but despite all the health challenges he has to endure his mother says he is always smiling and never grizzles or moans. 
The new Breezi chair, which can grow with Jonjo, will enable him to sit up at table to eat with his family and share games with his older sisters and brother, giving him the extra support he needs.
