A TODDLER from Crewe with a puzzling medical condition is bravely stepping out to help raise money for Leighton Hospital's children's ward.
Little Jayden-Lewis Arrowsmith, who is nearly two, will be walking a mile-and-a-half around the King George playing fields in a sponsored walk on April 19.
He is receiving treatment at Leighton and at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool after regular fits.
His mother Gemma Mason, of Davenport Avenue, Crewe, said: 'Doctors have yet to formally identify Jayden's condition but he is seeing a neurologist at the moment and has been given medication because of his fits.
'We are completely un-aware of the cause of Jayden's condition. It could be epilepsy or a growth tumour. We don't know yet.'
In light of Jayden's condition, Gemma wants to give something back to the people of the children's department at Leighton so that they can buy new equipment.
She got in touch with Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council's Debra Cornes who is the co-ordinator of the Step by Step Walking programme.
Gemma added: 'The staff at Leighton and Alder Hey have been great with Jayden and I just want to be able to give something back to them for all they've done. I'm hoping we can raise £200-300.'
Debra said: 'We hold walking programmes every week to encourage people to become more active but it is the first time we have held something like this.
'I am very happy to be helping Jayden and Gemma and I wish him all the best.'
To sponsor Jayden on his walk you can pick up a sponsorship form from Debra Cornes at Delamere House on Delamere Street; from the Chronicle office at 32-34 Victoria Street, Crewe; or call his mother Gemma Mason on 07910 687546.
