Millie Bea’s Walking Wish

Millie Bea Hughes02

Let’s give Millie Bea the chance to chase her twin brother Evan around the garden!

My name is Millie Bea from Abbots Bromley near Rugeley in Staffs. I was born on 26th January 2014 at 32 weeks, 13 minutes before my twin brother Evan Ray. As we got bigger my brother could sit up and play with his toys, crawl around, walk and dance but because my legs don’t work properly I can only get around with the help of my Mommy and Daddy.

My Mommy and Daddy have been talking about an operation called SDR (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy). This means having an operation to make my legs work properly and stop being stiff and tight.

The Doctors will open my back and find the rootlets in my spine which make my legs tight. They will split them up and this will make my legs feel better and help me to walk.

I will need to do lots of physiotherapy after which will be hard but I just can’t wait to be able to walk like my brother!
