Kieran is 14 years old, and was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2010. This meant his leg had to be amputated, and whilst he is now in remission, he still requires regular check-ups to ensure the cancer has not returned.
At 5 stone, Kieran used to be a very athletic boy, and the loss of a leg has made it very difficult for him to continue to be active. He has the use of an NHS leg, but at around 1 stone, it weighs almost a fifth of his body weight, making it difficult for him to get around.
There are sports legs available on the market, but they cost up to £25,000 and because Kieran is still growing, will only last for 2-3 years. Now a keen gymnast, with potential to take part in Olympic teams at the highest level, Kieran requires the specialist equipment, which will enable him to do this.
