Keith Grimes has got together with a number of local talented singers to help raise money for Kaycee Bradshaw as she battles Battens disease.
The Saints fan has recorded ‘The Fairytale of St Helens’ alongside the likes of Kiera Weathers and Stillia’s Jack Bennett – and it is available to download now for just 79p on iTunes.
Battens Disease is a rare neurological condition that begins in childhood.
It’s a debilitating illness and symptoms include visual impairment resulting in blindness, complex epilepsy, involuntary muscle spasms, severe seizures, decline of speech, language and swallowing skills and deterioration of motor skills that result in the loss of mobility.
Currently, there is no cure for this form of disease and so specialist symptom management and therapy is essential to assist in maintaining a good quality of life for children and their families, as holistic support for families is extremely important throughout their journey.
As there are extremely limited funds available and a lack of awareness, this song could make a real difference in Kaycee’s life.
The Fairytale of St Helens
It would be fantastic if all Saints could get behind this cause!
