We need to raise £75,000 for life changing spinal surgery for our beautiful 3 year old daughter from Bristol who has Cerebral Palsy. This surgery will help Daisy to walk and improve her quality of life.
Daisy is a lovely, funny girl arriving into this world several weeks early and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This causes tightness in her legs making walking difficult, climbing the stairs even harder and running impossible.
Daisy has a twin sister Poppy and is frustrated she can’t do the things she does.
There isn’t a cure for Cerebral Palsy, but there is life changing surgery called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which Daisy has been referred for. SDR is the only surgical procedure that will permanently reduce or eliminate the tightness that causes Daisy to stumble and fall on a daily basis. The operation, which involves cutting some of the damaged nerves in the lower spine, isn’t available on the NHS and so to give Daisy the best possible chance of independence we need to raise £75,000 for Just4Children.
This will cover the operation and the intensive two year post op physiotherapy. Our wish for Daisy is to see her playing with her friends and having a more normal life.
