About Theo

Six-year-old Theo has a rare condition called CHARGE. He is blind in one eye and has problems with his ears that affect his balance. He’s also fed through a tube into his stomach and has a heart defect.

Theo’s condition means that he can’t take part in many of the activities that other children enjoy.

But when he came on a Sense holiday last year, Theo threw himself into it whole heartedly. He fed pigs, splashed about in the hydrotherapy pool, had a great day at the seaside and even rode the log flume at an adventure park - activities which were completely unimaginable when he was first diagnosed.
