Jesse's story


"Jesse is full of smiles when he uses his walker."

Two year old Jesse, from Exeter, has CHARGE syndrome.

CHARGE is a genetic condition that can cause a wide range of serious medical problems.

In Jesse’s case he is profoundly deaf and has big problems maintaining his balance. His balance problems mean he cannot walk independently.

Action For Kids provided Jesse with a walker, and it is making a huge difference to his life.

Jesse’s mum, Rachel said:

“He is obviously so much happier. He’s gained confidence and is more independent.

“The doctor that Jesse sees is absolutely delighted with his progress since he got his walker. The doctor says that the equipment is already making a huge difference to Jesse’s posture and this will have real health benefits and massively help his development. Thank you so much.”
