My name is Aaron, I’m nearly five years old from Newry in northern Ireland. I was born with cerebral palsy and diplegia in my limbs. I’m trying to raise funds for Just4Children to help me receive surgery in America to give me a chance to walk.
Aaron was born at 32 weeks, spending his first month in neonatal intensive care. He did not meet any of his mile stones, raising a red flag. Aaron was subjected to lots of tests where the out come was diagnosed as cerebral palsy and diplegia in his limbs.
Aaron is now nearly 5 years old and we have the opportunity to attend surgery in America that will give him the chance to walk unaided or at least relieve his pains. Aaron would be under the care of Dr Park, a world renowned surgeon in SDR (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy) at St Louis Hopsital.
Aaron like all other little boys wants to be a firefighter and an army man as he says. It breaks our hearts as parents to know these jobs will never be available to him. So, by getting this surgery we can at least give him a better quality of life and career opportunities when he is older.
