“We got a phone call to say we could come to Brickhouse on a family holiday and we were just over the moon.”
Last November, Leon, his mother, Sophie, and his sister, Isabella, joined us at our Brickhouse Farm Cottages break. Leon is eleven now, but was diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy, a life limiting condition, at four years old.
He’s started to lose some physical abilities, and as a previously active child, the change has been difficult to get used to, both mentally and physically. Even so, Sophie describes Leon as “such a sociable boy, he has a really funny sense of humour – he loves a bit of banter.”
