Townsville boy Harry caught Influenza A on March 23 this year, and has had his life changed. 

The sickness caused the Autistic boy to have a seizure lasting more than 50 minutes, which has now left the toddler with a list of health hurdles. 

Following on from the trauma, Harry had to spend time in Hospital partly in the Instensive Care Unit. 

The 3-year-old is now unable to walk, use his hands properly, or sit up right.

Now the Townsville community are coming together to help make things easier for Harry and his family. 

The little fighter also suffers an epileptic condition called Dravet Syndrome, but thousands of dollars are pouring in, to make the future brighter for Harry. 

Nearly $5,000 has already been raised through a GoFundMe Page in less than 12 hours.
