A FATHER wants to give his five-year-old son the holiday of a lifetime - before the muscle-wasting condition from which he suffers means he is unable to walk.

Little Kane Smith was diagnosed in June with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy - the most severe form of the condition.

It will gradually cause his muscles to weaken and he will eventually end up in a wheelchair - which he already uses occasionally.

His father Martin, 31, of Spring Vale Road, Great Houghton, is now trying to raise the money to take Kane, sister Kasey, eight, and Kane's mum Julie Kinder to Disney World.

"We've been doing a lot of fundraising so we can take him to Disney before his condition gets any worse and hope to raise about £10,000," Martin said. "So far, we've managed to raise £2,300.

"He loves Disney and when we first found out about his condition, it was the first thing that came into my mind."
