A mystery benefactor has donated £33,000 to help a 3 year old boy get an operation that will allow him to walk unaided for the first time.
The cash gift means Xavier Fane can now fly to the US for pioneering surgery by a world leading specialist.
The youngster, from East Dulwich, has cerebral palsy and cannot walk without the aid of a special green walker.
He will undergo a pioneering selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) operation, which could reverse some of his problems with mobility and balance.
