EDITOR'S BLOG: Please support George's Fund

IMAGINE if your child couldn't stand up, sit up or play with his friends and relatives like a normal, happy toddler.
This is what the parents of George Tappenden face - an extraordinarily brave little lad, who endures a battle every day of his life, even though he isn't even out of nappies.
George suffers from a muscle-wasting condition which prevents him doing the simple things other children of his age take for granted.
The condition has effectively deprived him of the use of his legs, it has deprived him of the ability to play with his sister and, one day, it may ultimately deprive him of his life.
But George soldiers on and, as you will be able to see in our page 3 story tomorrow, is an incredibly brave but also adorable young boy.
This week, we are backing his parents' fundraising campaign, to collect enough money for a vital piece of equipment which can make George's life far more pleasant.
A little over £20,000 will buy a snap chair, to allow George to do those things referred to previously - to stand up, to sit down unaided, to enjoy playtime.
Times are tough and money is tight but we'd urge you, even if it's a pound, to donate and support George's Fund.
For parents, there is no greater wish than to see you child live a healthy, happy life.
This will never be the case for Lucy Frost and her partner Anthony, but we can at least all do our bit to help them and, most importantly, George, enjoy life as a family.
