Brothers Daniel (aged 16) and Harrison (aged 14) both suffer from neurofibromatosis, a condition where the tissue forms tumours which suppress the nervous system and have the potential to cause serious damage.
Despite having to undergo treatment and frequently visit the hospital for MRI scans, both brothers remain very happy and upbeat about life; Daniel is always smiling and willing to help others, and Harrison is described by his parents as “a right cheeky monkey”!
In 2010, Starlight granted both brothers greatest wishes: Harrison, a budding artist, went on a shopping spree to buy art supplies, whilst Daniel received his very own replica latex Predator 1 costume.
Since then, these altruistic lads have been working really hard to raise funds for Starlight so that other poorly children may also be granted a wish. Harrison has sold his very own artworks at local fairs and Daniel, dressed in his Predator costume, has posed in photos with fairgoers for a small charge.
To date, the brothers have raised an impressive £200 for Starlight.
Harrison and Daniel …. you’re superstars!!
