Just4Children wish to provide Henry with the intensive weekly therapy he needs to continue to build on his current skills – improving his balance, strength and abilities coordination.
Henry is a 6 year old from Midsomer Norton, Somerset who loves to be independent and making people smile. At 12 months old he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy spastic diplegia which most noticeably affects Henry’s lower limbs making him unable to stand or walk unaided. This has never stopped Henry aiming for better mobility and independence with his determined nature helping him along the way.
Henry has received weekly therapy since diagnosis which has become a big part of his life, teaching him the skills to sit, crawl, walk with a walker and now learning to walk with just sticks thus increasing his stamina to go even further. These are skills we all take for granted but Henry has to work extra hard to achieve.
We are fundraising for Just4Children to provide Henry with continued, regular therapy to build on his existing skills and more importantly to increase his balance, strength and coordination.
Henry deserves the same independence and mobility as any other 6 year old boy.
