Hope For Hudson

Please join us in raising funds for Hudson, so he can access a one of a kind therapy across the other side of the world.

This is our 5 year old son Hudson. Hudson has severe Regressional Autism affecting all aspects of his life. He is also pre-verbal, meaning that while he can make noises, he does not yet have the ability to say any clear words.

Accessing Stem Cell Therapy is our chance to help Hudson to be able to make significant progress with his development, gain some independence and improve his quality of life. Without this treatment, we are afraid Hudson will never be able to effectively communicate his wants and needs and be able to function in the world around him.

Hudson's Story

Hudson's life hasn't always been filled with the struggles that he now faces each and every day. Before his 2nd birthday he was like any typical child. He was able to speak, be affectionate, play and interact with others around him.

By the time Hudson was 3, he had been diagnosed and his developmental skills had regressed back to that of a 9 month old, he wouldnt even turn to acknowledge if his name was called. We are desperate for any help that will see improvements for Hudson.

Hudson has attended weekly and fortnightly Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy for nearly 3 years to no avail. He has not yet developed the skills to effectively communicate through assisted technology. Hudson is solely dependent on us his parents to do even the simplest of tasks for him. He is unable to feed, dress, bathe or toilet by himself. Hudson cannot go out in public without being in the safety of his pram, he has absolutely no concept of danger. Cars, strangers and rivers, etc., do not evoke any fear for him.

Earlier this year, we privately funded the initial Stem Cell Therapy for Hudson. His first treatment has shown some small improvements, though It is recommended that at least 2 rounds of treatment are undertaken. Unfortunately, we are unable to self-fund the second round but we really need this opportunity for Hudson. Without this treatment, all we can do is wait for time to pass and hope and pray that things turn out better for Hudson.

Goals and Needs

Our goal is for Hudson to develop some independence and regain lost skills. Currently his Autism is holding him back from achieving this. The reality is I will not be around forever to dress, feed, wash, carry or speak for my son. Without accessing this treatment, the responsibility of intensively caring for him will eventually fall on someone else. We all know, there is no other love like a mother's love I am scared for what will happen to Hudson if I can't at least try to do the best I can to help him gain some form of independence.

How you can help

If you are able to make a donation to help us get Hudson the therapy that he deserves, please do. Any amount donated is a step forward for Hudson's cause. All support is greatly appreciated and will ultimately mean the world to my little boy.

If you can find it in your heart, please share this page to help raise awareness of Hudson's need to access therapy.

Thank you for your time and support,

Nathanael, Lauren, Baxter, Hudson and Bailee

(The Combridge Family)
