A Cranbrook family says it’s facing an ‘uncertain and daunting’ future since their baby was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

But although it’s too late to save their 11-month-old son, the family say they have been moved by the ‘incredible support’ they’ve received from friends and family.

Already more than £6,930 has been raised to improve Martin Stokes’s quality of life and to help his family.

Martin was diagnosed with Krabbe’s disease in August.

“It was devastating news,” says his mother, Emma Woods. “It’s a terminal illness that means Martin will lose the ability to see, hear, feel, eat and smile. His life expectancy is less than two years. We have been moved by the incredible support we have had. Any money raised will be put towards spending as much time together as possible, creating happy memories and purchasing any equipment that could contribute to a better quality of life for Martin.”
