Project 124-2017-18

Project Name:
Joshua & Lucas Baric (RACG)

Country:
Australia

Description:
District 9830 Tasmania is raising funds that are required to build a pool and spa for the Baric family whose two sons (9 and 12 years old) have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. There is no cure for DMD and the disease is progressive and is 100% fatal due to muscle wasting. Average life expectancy is mid 20's. Both siblings also have autism. Physiotherapy (especially aquatic) is central to the boys quality of life but spa and pool facilities in Hobart are in high demand and consequently, access is very limited. Neither parent is able to work as both of them are the boy's full-time carers. They receive a carers pension but this can obviously only fund basic living costs. Other financial resources including superannuation have already been exhausted.
