IN three weeks, two four-year-old Gold Coast twins will embark on the first of three life changing trips to France.
Matthew and Harry will this month celebrate their combined fifth birthday before flying to the renowned Avene skin clinic in France for the first time where they will undergo a 28-day treatment program in an effort to reduce the severity of their debilitating skin and food allergies.
The young brothers captured the hearts of thousands across the Gold Coast earlier this year when their story and fundraising campaign hit social media.

On Monday May 26, the twins will depart for France with their mother and grandmother to seek the world’s best treatment and advice.
Specific formula diets, restricted environments and routine medications will make travelling difficult.
Matthew and Harry’s luggage consists of 60 tins of Elecare, a suitcase of medication accompanied with a doctor’s clearance to get them through border security, and their own bedding and seat protectors for the plane.
They are hoping to return to France on two more occasions in the near future to complete the three stage treatment.
