I first met Anna-Louise, Stuart, Fraser and Elizabeth Bates with some of their extended family in 2015 on their holiday whilst The Zoots were performing our show on a cruise ship. Her son Fraser was the first ever volunteer we had perform on stage with the band for our theatre shows. Fraser was such a natural and we were so impressed with his performance on stage!

The current treatment is non-specif, with many potentially life-threatening complications. NeST funds Bristol Children’s Hospital in researching NS to find a cure.
