Just4Children are fundraising to send Elsie to St Louis for SDR surgery.
Elsie-Mae was born full term and healthy in November 2016 in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
When Elsie turned 6 months we started noticing things weren’t as they should be, Elsie wasn’t meeting her milestones. After months of pestering her GP and trips to the hospital we finally had an MRI scan at 15 months old that clearly showed us the extent of Elsie’s brain damage called periventricular leukomalacia, which perfectly fitted her spastic diplegia diagnosis.
Fast forward to current time, Elsie is now 18 months old and is still unable to sit unaided and also has a cognitive impairment.
As a family we are desperate to get our little girl the SDR surgery. We know this would change Elsie’s life completely and give her the ability to grow up with her siblings in the most active way possible!
We really appreciate any help you may be able to offer in aid of supporting our beautiful baby girl.
