Hello, my name is Kiaryn and I am nearly 6 years old from Billesley in Birmingham. Due to a difficult birth I had a bleed on the brain, starving part of the brain of oxygen. I have been diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. This means I can’t sit unaided, use my right arm, talk or walk. My legs are very stiff because the spasticity makes the muscles really tight causing me a lot of pain.
Apart from all this I am a very happy, cheeky boy. I have been accepted at Nottingham Hospital for a life changing operation called SDR. The operation involves cutting some of the nerves in the lower spinal column, which will help relieve the stiffness in my legs. With a lot of physiotherapy afterwards I have the chance of being able to walk! There are many other benefits too, I won’t be in pain and will have improved sitting, improved speech, toileting, hand function and better sleep.
The cost of the operation and intense physiotherapy for the next couple of years is £30,000. Please donate and help my wish come true.
