Desperate appeal as Freddie Hunt battles 'hypothalamic obesity'

Published at 6:40pm 25th July 2017. (Updated at 6:19am 26th July 2017)

A desperate appeal has been made by the family of Freddie Hunt, as they battle to save his life.

The 3-year-old Yateley toddler is now suffering from 'hypothalamic obesity' following his brain surgery in the US in January.

His mum Abby Hunt says he "won't be here this time next year" if he doesn't get the help he needs.

The family are now reaching out to anyone who can help. 

In a post on the Together For Freddie Facebook Page, she said: "We are reaching out to just anyone.

'Our hearts are in a thousand pieces'

"We know there are drugs on the market but perhaps not tested fully or he's under age , but if you're desperate what's the option? We will try anything to save him.

"These drugs so far are not an option we've been advised.

"Whilst we are on our knees we are fighting to keep him alive, knowing the future not bright at all.

"It's just unimaginable that there are drugs that may save his life, but we can't get our hands on them to save Yateley's Freddie!

"Any ideas are welcome, we are scared and heart broken yet the battle goes on to save his life. Why do we need to battle when our hearts are in a thousand pieces. It's just not fair (life.)"
