Criosta suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which is a serious muscle wasting condition that effects every muscle in the body including heart lungs and brain there is currently no cure and very limited treatments for this condition! It is life limiting and life expectancy is late teens early 20! The generosity of TeamKit will help to fund the ongoing treatment he is receiving at present.
The Connolly family have ask me to add that they are running an Easter draw to raise funds for treatment and tickets can be purchased thru Criostai’s Heroes Facebook page!
