Theme details

Penguins - Some cars on the label please :)

Child Interests

Olly loves cars, especially old fashioned and sports cars.
He also likes Lego, Minecraft and penguins.
His most favourite colour is Red, and also likes orange, blue, green and yellow.


Olly was diagnosed with DMD just after his second birthday. Olly wasn't meeting all of his milestones and was a late walker. After 8 months of physio with no change he was referred to a paediatrician who gave us the heart breaking news.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a rare muscle wasting condition which in time will affect all of his muscles including his heart. Life expectancy is around mid twenties. Olly is still quite mobile and uses a wheelchair for long distances. He cannot run fast, jump, hop or climb. We have started noticing differences now as he struggles getting up from the floor and is starting to get slower in general.

He loves playing with his Lego and cars and is a very happy little boy. He doesn't let anything get in his way and nothing phases him. Olly is awesome xx
