Pseudo-Obstruction Research Trust (PORT)

I am looking for help raising awareness and funds to go into research for a charity call Pseudo-Obstruction Research Trust (PORT)

Dear All,
I am a lifelong member and player of Blackburn Rugby club. I am looking for help raising awareness and funds to go into research for a charity call Pseudo-Obstruction Research Trust (PORT)
My 9 year old son suffers from this rare condition and as it is so rare there is no research done into the condition.
I would like to give some background information that has led to me making this request.

I am very lucky to have a little boy who is literally 1 in 742,000!
Charlie suffers from Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction along with approximately 120 people in the UK and around 1,000 worldwide. This is a life-threatening and sometimes life-limiting disease. We are losing young children who suffer.
Suffering from this condition means he has never really eaten a full meal, he has undergone 26 operations in his 9 years and faces a life of uncertainty and issues.
He is tube fed a small amount directly into his stomach and also through a tube that goes into his bloodstream. This cuts out the digestion process but gives him the calories and all the nutrition he needs as his bowel could not handle a normal diet.

This charity was set up by family and friends, past and present of the sufferers, to research this bowel condition. Here is a link to a promotional video we had made of our son Charlie for you to look at and also the charity's website details. Please have a watch.
