Millie has recently been accepted for SDR surgery at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. This is life changing surgery for Millie who has severe cerebral palsy.
Millie is aged 8 from Stoke on Trent. She was born 12 weeks early weighing just over a bag of sugar. Millie was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at six weeks old. Her four limbs are affected, particularly her legs resulting in her not being able to walk, sit, nor stand independently.
The hospital told us Millie’s chances of walking, sitting, talking and eating were very low, but with sheer dedication and love she is now a very fiesty, intelligent and funny 8 year old.
Millie craves for a pain free independent life which this operation will massively help. £25,000 is needed for the surgery and post operative intense physiotherapy.
Millie never stops to amaze us with her positive smiley outlook on life but there is the other side to Millie who gets very embarrassed and frustrated about being in her wheelchair and cries in the night for us to turn her and get her comfortable.
Please, please no matter how little you can spare SDR would mean the world to Millie and her family.
