Samuel de Laszlo looks like any other six-year-old, happily playing, or chasing his elder brother Thomas in the park. However, Samuel has an incurable genetic muscle-wasting condition, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). One in 3,500 boys is born with it, and in the UK 2,500 children have it at the moment. Most children living with this condition are in a wheelchair by the age of 12, and their average life expectancy in the UK is 29. Tinies is inviting over 5,500 primary schools, local businesses and families to host a ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ in aid of Muscular Dystrophy UK on 9 October 2015 – and they need you to get involved. ‘Bake a Difference 2015’, proudly supported by Tinies Childcare, aims to raise awareness of DMD, to help support those living with muscle-wasting conditions and research funding. Sammy's parents Tricia and Oliver de Laszlo say: “We hope you will enjoy baking cakes for our awareness campaign. In life, we all have our dreams and challenges and one can achieve anything whatever the obstacle. Ollie Hynd, the London 2012 Paralympian Gold medallist has achieved great success while living with the daily challenges of having Muscular Dystrophy.” Visit www.tinies.com/bake-a-difference-2015
