Just4Children hope to raise £50,000 for a life changing operation called SDR to help Amelia aged 2 from Orpington in Kent.

Amelia was born with her twin sister at 27 weeks. As time went on we realised that Amelia struggled with sitting, crawling and being able to stand still and walk. She was finally diagnosed at 2 1/2 with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy.

Amelia has the most determined attitude and while she is able to take some steps she often falls and becomes limited by the high level of spasticity in her legs.

Our only long term option for Amelia is Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy. SDR is a major operation which involves cutting some of the damaged nerves in the lower spine. It isn’t available on the NHS so we need to raise £50,000 for Just4Children to help fund the operation and rehabilitation.

Some funds will be needed for a hydrotherapy bath to be purchased and installed at home. This would greatly aid in relaxing Amelia’s muscles and easing the pain in her legs.

Amelia is an outgoing, funny and determined little girl, who sometimes opts to be called Princess Amelia, Lulu or even chocolate cake! She longs to be able to do the same as her twin sister and older brother but struggles to keep up. SDR will allow her to achieve many things that most find so simple.

Thank you
