Yateley's Freddie Hunt to begin 'intensive programme'

Published at 6:00am 4th October 2017. (Updated at 7:55am 4th October 2017)

Yateley's Freddie Hunt is waiting for a date to begin a 4-month intensive program, in the hope of getting him walking again.

The three-year-old has been accepted for a place at Tadworth Court in Epsom. 

The Children's Trust is run for children with brain injuries, and is run by the NHS. 

The 3-year-old toddler has also been battling 'hypothalamic obesity' following his brain surgery in the US in January.

Freddie will be staying at the centre with his mum, Abby Hunt. 

"This is going to be extremely tough for other kids, but an opportunity we can not turn down", she wrote in a previous post on the Together for Freddie Facebook Page. 

Freddie is currently booked to have an x-ray on his hips, which will take place before he starts the program at the centre. 


"It is going to be tough and it's quite emotionally draining. When he does his physio he tends to scream and shout.

"Sometimes they can have problems with their hips when they don't walk about.

"But hopefully, at the end of it all, we'll have him walking back through the door", Abby said. 


The rehabilitation program will also see Freddie start nursery, as well as hopefully learning to walk and lose weight. 

Abby has told Eagle it would mean the world to the family to get their little boy back on his feet: "I wouldn't want to win the lottery, I wouldn't want anything. There is nothing that can buy these things in life.

"Money can't buy these things like happiness in your family.

"I just want him well again and just to see him running around like the little 3-year-old that he should be, doing all the things he should be doing.

"Making a mess and things like that."

The Hunt's are waiting for a date to be given for Freddie to start at the centre, once there is an available bed. 

It is thought it could be by the end of the month. 

Good luck Freddie!
