The family of an "incredibly brave" 3-year-old boy with a life-limiting condition are trying to raise £10,000 to help improve his quality of life. 

Oliver Lander was diagnosed with a condition called Bronchiectasis and a rare immunodeficiency, APDS, that affects around one in a million people. 

The condition puts the youngster at high risk of catching frequent infections resulting in hospitalisation and an increased risk of lymphoma cancer or other life-threatening conditions at a young age. 

Now Oliver's family have launched a fundraiser to help buy a chest wall oscillation vest, which is not available on the NHS, to help clear his chest and ensure his lungs grow until his teenage years.

They are also being supported by Stourport Pharmacy which has already helped raise £1,700 from the generosity of patients. 

Describing Oliver as "incredibly brave", his dad, Tom Lander, said: "Oliver has got a lifelong condition called Bronchiectasis and a rare immunodeficiency and the money raised will go towards obtaining an oscillation vest which will improve his quality of life.

"I would like to thank Stourport Pharmacy and all their patients and staff who have been so kind enough to donate to this cause. 

"Jennifer Lander-Clarke, Oliver's Nana, has been at the forefront of raising funds for her grandson in the pharmacy."

As well as the support from the pharmacy, Oliver's family have set up a GoFundMe page in the aim of reaching their target with his dad also signing up for the Birmingham 10K Winter Warmer Run next month. 

So far, they have managed to raise an incredible £8,780, but are encouraging the community to help them get over the line. 

Mr Lander added: "So far in 3 weeks Jennifer has raised a whopping £1700 alone from the generosity of patients. However, we still have not reached our target of £10,000.

"Any donations, no matter how small would be gratefully received. Please follow the link provided to make a donation to help Oliver's cause."
