The Northern Echo | January 22, 2011 | By Dani Webb
A BRAVE couple, who lost their three-month-old baby to a rare muscular condition, are backing a fundraising campaign set up in his memory.
John and Tracey Chad, of Parkside, Darlington, said they were honoured to be asked by Butterwick House Children’s Hospice to put son Matthew’s name to an appeal to raise £25,000.
The money raised from Matthew’s Memory Appeal, which will be launched today, will fund a sick children’s nurse.
Matthew was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, a neuromuscular condition causing weakness of the muscles, when he was 11-weeksold.
