Black Frog Management in Association with The Axe Attack Presents:

Please come and show your support for a little boy, Jethro Gantley who was born last year with a serious disease called Atypical Hemolitic Uremic Syndrome. The complications associated with this illness are:

• Kidney failure
• Seizures/neurological problems
• No response to supportive treatments
• Return of HUS even after kidney transplant occurs
• Severe hypertension (high blood pressure)

For Jethro to have a chance at a long life he needs to get onto the drug Soliris, one of the world's most expensive drugs. It is not guaranteed to work, but it is his only hope of having a somewhat stable life. This drug is around $500,000 yearly, and he would need to be on it for the rest of his life. His family have applied for funding and been rejected as it is an ongoing cost.

I'm helping the family out by trying to raise as much awareness as possible by running a series of fundraiser shows. I am endeavouring to get as much media attention for the family as possible so anyone with contacts here would be greatly appreciated.
