TOFs Charity Fun Day

Hey everyone! We're hosting a charity fun day at Mossley football club to raise money and awareness for TOF's a charity close to both our hearts. This charity has supported and helped both our families with our little one's who were born tof/oa. We hope you can all come help support this amazing charity!

A

little about tof/oa
Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula (TOF) and Oesophageal Atresia (OA) are rare congenital conditions of the oesophagus (food pipe) and/or trachea (airway) that affect one in every 3,500 babies. Babies born with TOF/OA need to have intensive neo-natal care prior to corrective surgery, normally within days of birth.
Some children have to undergo additional surgical interventions later on in their lives. Whilst many children born with TOF/OA will experience only a few problems, others may have difficulties with swallowing and digesting food, Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux (where the acidic stomach contents pass back into the lower oesophagus) and respiratory problems. The effects of surgery and associated health problems can add a great deal to the usual challenges of parenthood.

Currently nobody knows what causes TOF or OA. For the new parent of a TOF child, this is very important to understand - it was not your fault, you couldn’t have done anything to prevent it.

With the benefits of modern medical intervention and the active support of groups like TOFS, the outlook for children with TOF/OA is very positive.
