A nine-year-old boy who suffers from a crippling spinal condition has written a heartbreaking letter to Santa asking for his pain to be taken away.
Tyler Chambers, from Wraby, Lincolnshire, asked Father Christmas to make his back better this year, as well as asking for scooter, chocolates and a football.
Young Tyler, who wants to grow up to be a footballer, suffers from scoliosis, a condition which causes his spine to curve.
He also has a brain condition which affects his spinal chord and nerves.
In the letter written in green felt-tip pen Tyler asked Santa to ‘make my back better and don’t get any more pain’.
His Mum, Natasha Ward, 28, said: ‘I started crying as soon as I saw it. In the past year, he has been through so much.
‘He always says, ‘Mum, you know when I grow up and I’m a footballer, I’m gonna buy you a Lamborghini- I’m gonna buy you a Lamborghini but it has to be green.’
‘He really is so sweet and loving.
‘I used to keep telling him all the time to stand up straight and to stand properly, and he was like, ‘Mum, I am standing straight!’
‘I just thought, well, something’s not right.’
