Abacus Healthcare, a leading provider of power assisted baths for disabled bathers, has donated a Gemini bath to Matthew Cooper aged 12, as part of his family’s DIY SOS TV programme home conversion in Trench, Telford.

Matthew was a typical active boy and Doctor Who fan aged 10 when he began to experience headaches and nausea which led to the diagnosis of a brain tumour. Following surgery, he was given a positive prognosis however Matthew’s blood pressure became unstable and resulted in two significant Strokes and extensive paralysis. Supported by his parents Sue and Leigh, Matthew spent 18 months in Birmingham Children’s Hospital undergoing treatment and chemotherapy to stabilise his condition. Matthew was eventually discharged however he had to move into rented accommodation as the family’s house was totally inaccessible and impractical for his care needs. Hence the Coopers began raising funds for the extensive building work required so Matthew could return home.
