Just4Children is trying to raise £75,000 for Elliott to have life changing SDR surgery including rehabilitation, therapies and equipment he may need pre and post op to reach his full potential in life.
Elliott is aged 4 from Newton Abbot in Devon. He was born prematurely at 31 weeks in 2013 along with his twin sister Elsie and spent 5 weeks in N.i.c.u.
At around 9 months old we noticed Elliott was not hitting any milestones. A few months later our worst fears were confirmed. Elliott has brain damage from lack of oxygen due to being premature resulting in spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. This affects both of his legs causing severe stiffness making him unable to sit unaided or walk.
Our hope is to raise enough money for Elliott to have an operation called SDR (selective dorsal rhizotomy) as it is not available on the NHS.
The money raised will enable Elliott to have the surgery in Bristol hospital and pay for the intensive private physiotherapy required pre and post op and any equipment he may need to assist rehabilitation.
Elliott is a happy determined boy who is desperate to walk along side his twin sister, siblings and friends. Please help us in our journey to make our little boy’s dream come true.
