We will be updating our website and social media pages over this weekend and into next week with a full reaction from Aaron, on how he feels about winning the award, his hopes for ROHHAD research and how the night went.

Aaron has asked us to share a few words with you all that he wanted to say at the awards, however due to severe social anxiety and how debilitating ROHHAD is, he was unable to say all that he wanted too. He did manage to collect the award and dedicate his award to all of his special friends with ROHHAD and for him that was the most important thing, he was determined to do this despite how poorly his ROHHAD makes him feel.

He also wants you all to know he had an incredible time, really enjoyed the night and that he was so well cared for and looked after by all of the team at Pride of Britain. He said to say you need to watch the show to see why the night and all the other winners were incredible!

AaronMan’s words

“ Thank you so much to Pride of Britain and to everybody who voted for me to win this Award. I would like to accept the award and dedicate it too all of the ROHHAD Children. This is for you! Your my reason for wanting to find a cure I know how hard and painful this is and I want to help make you better.

Thank you so much to IronMan and to everyone who did my muddy puddle challenge and to all the people who support the ROHHAD Association charity. It’s because of you that we can begin Medical Research now.

I know we need to raise a lot more money if we are going to find a cure and I promise I will try my best to keep fighting and raising funds I’ll keep thinking of ideas to help.

If anyone here wants to help you can still do my #GoMadJumpForROHHAD “ muddy puddle” challenge it’s not too late. Plus there’s plenty of rain just now so lots of muddy puddles !!”

HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF OUR AMAZING SUPPORTERS AND AWESOME ROHHAD FAMILIES.

Apologies we have been a little quiet on the website these past few weeks, we were experiencing some server difficulties which look to be fully resolved now !!

What a fabulous year 2016 was for raising awareness and much needed funds to find a cure.  We had such a fun time at all of our events, from the spring ball to our family Halloween night.  Aaron has done a fabulous job of raising awareness with his social media video and some of the other kids have been doing the same, with families speaking to the press around the world and the kids doing what they can to raise funds and awareness.  THANK YOU to every single person who helped last year, we are deeply grateful for all of the support.

We still have such a long way to go but all of us at the charity are excited for 2017, we are hoping that this will be the year that we raise enough funds for research in the UK to begin ! as well as National and Global awareness ! Also hoping to do some more blogging about the children this affects so that our supporters can gain some insight into ROHHAD and who they are helping.

We have so many exciting things planned and will be posting details of those soon and in the coming months so please keep following our website posts and social media pages @ROHHAD_GLOBAL on twitter and ROHHAD Association on Facebook.

In the meantime Aaron still has ongoing his social media campaign #GOMADJUMPFORROHHAD !!  Our charity Ambassador Emily Middlemas recently completed her challenge and we cant wait to see more people getting involved including the X Factor Finalists.

If you have not done the challenge yet please see our homepage for how too ! and please Get Your Wellies On !!
