Just4Children needs your help for a very special little 1 year old girl with cerebral palsy from London who desperately needs stem cell therapy.
My name is Anaya and I born 4th March 2017. My life started not easy, but I am a big fighter and I will tell you why. On the happiest day in the life for my parents something happened and my mum suffered a placental abruption – and due to that I starved of oxygen.
I am diagnosed with HIE grade 3 and spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. I spent a long 7 weeks in NICU.
For me it’s very hard to move hands and legs. They are very stiff. And my trunk is weak and it’s hard for me to hold my head or to sit up. I have to work really hard to reach my goals. But the NHS simply cannot provide the physiotherapy with the frequency I am require. I am seeing a physio once every 2-3 months. I am still on a waiting list for any occupational therapy. I am yet to meet a neurologist.
That’s why I need private therapies. And it’s really expensive. This year I have been to the Bobath Centre and the Adeli Medical Center in Slovakia. My biggest dream is to receive stem cells therapy at Duke University Medical Center in USA.
Any help for me would be very gratefully received.
My life started not easy, but I am not going to give up! I just need your help!
