Who, you might ask, is Damien Henzell? Let me tell you about Damien. He is a beautiful 6 year old child who suffers from Atypical Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome (aHUS), a rare disease that leads to kidney failure.
We almost lost Damien numerous times during his young life until he was put on the drug Eculizumab, which began to make a huge difference in his life. For the first time he was able to run, play and enjoy life like any other child.
Now, Damiens treatment with Eculizumab has been stopped because his Primary Care Trust has refused to fund it. The funding for care with this medication has also been refused to other children who are not fortunate enough to live in wealthier, better funded post codes. One of these other children is a 2 year old little girl.
This contest is designed to bring attention to the plight of Damien, as well as that of other children being refused this live saving treatment.
