A mother in the UK says the response to her plea for musical therapy for her terminally ill son has been "incredible." 

Charlotte Nixon's son Bailey has a rare brain condition that is now life-threatening and he is unable to leave his home. 

Nixon said her son always loved music and would tap his foot along and laugh when he heard a song. 

"Bailey now cannot be moved out of the house due to his deterioration so he would need music therapy at home. 

"He loves the sound of a guitar and some gentle singing," she told Coventry Live. 

So the mother of two sent out an appeal on Facebook in November asking for local musicians and bands to come and play for Bailey. 

The story was picked up by local media and Nixon said in a later post the response had been "incredible." 

She added they had people coming to the house to play for her son every day for two weeks. 

"As a mum I am completely helpless and there is nothing more I can do for him however, knowing how much he loves music this is the last thing I can do for him. 

"Bailey is my life, my world and everything that I am and my heart is breaking so bad right now but I have one last fight to make sure my boy leaves this earth with a smile on his face," she told Coventry Live.
