Expo to help get Blaise to US for cerebral palsy treatment

HAPPY couples are invited to spread the love at an upcoming Wedding Expo to raise funds for local battler, Blaise Wyatt.

Funds raised will help the six-year-old, who suffers from a severe form of cerebral palsy, get to a state-of-the-art treatment centre in the United States for an intensive seven week program.

Blaise's mother Dawn Mackenzie-Wyatt said the expo would offer a wide range of experienced professionals who could help with every stage of the wedding planning process.

"We'll have a lot of stall holders who can help you plan your special day," she said.

"We will have DJs, dress makers, cake decorators and more.

"We will also have an online auction that starts on Saturday and finishes live at the event."

Ms Mackenzie-Wyatt said an individual donor has paid for the family's flights to the US and now they were trying to raise enough to cover their expenses during Blaise's treatment.

"It's a bit surreal. We feel really blessed that someone heard his story and wants to help," she said.

"On his last four-week trip to America Blaise made so much progress.

"We're excited to see what he'll achieve in seven weeks."

The Wedding Expo will be held on Sunday from 10am-2pm at the Ipswich Club located at 14 Gray St.
