Wisbech family with poorly boys bowled over at support for fundraising efforts
A Wisbech family committed to raising awareness of a rare disease isn’t letting the coronavirus crisis get in their way.
Ben and Sarah Dodkins have been working towards raising funds after two of their three sons were diagnosed with a life-limiting and degenerative neurological disease.
Sons Finley and Harrison both have Juvenile Battens Disease and have been affected by strand CLN3, which will slowly take their sight, their memory, their physical abilities and eventually will take them from their family. Meanwhile middle son Arthur is free of the rare genetic disease and CLN3 strain which currently affects just 30 children in the UK including his brothers.
