After two years of fighting, the family of a Carlisle boy with a severe but undiagnosed disability, have become the first in Cumbria to receive a purpose built care pod.
Among his symptoms Ryan Wilkinson has chronic lung disease and profound deafness.

Disabled golfers from across the UK have descended on a golf resort in the Scottish Borders for the 'GB Phoenix Cup'.
Ten of the best golfers are competing in the event, hosted by the Scottish Disability Golf Partnership (SGDP).
The event is part of the SDGP's 10th anniversary celebrations, and is the third Ryder Cup style event to be generated by the charity.
Borders Sport and Leisure has launched its new three-year Borders Disability Sports Plan at the Para Sport Festival.
The aim of the scheme is to encourage more children and adults to get involved in sport.
There was an opportunity for people to try out activities at an event at Tweedbank.
Donald Gray says it's good to encourage people with disabilities to get involved in sports:
Around 140 people from across Dumfries and Galloway turned out for the region's first disability sport talent ID day.
The festival gave people with physical, learning and sensory disabilities a chance to try out different sports and see what's on offer in their area.
Representatives from Scottish Disability Sport also attended the event to see if there were any athletes who had the potential of progressing to a professional level.
Protestors in the Scottish Borders have vowed to carry on fighting against the closure of a work project for disabled adults.
The council this evening have confirmed they are shutting the Reivers Industry sites in Tweedbank, Selkirk and Langlie Mill.
The workshops are places where people with disabilities get the chance to work and meet up.

The council insists it can provide better services elsewhere.
