Just4Children are hoping to raise monies for a life changing SDR operation, private physiotherapy and specialist equipment for Leonie.
Leonie from Louth in Lincoln was born 11 weeks premature. She is now 7 years old.
When Leonie was born it was a traumatic delivery. It just went dreadfully wrong on that day even though someone so beautiful and precious came into this world. Leonie’s story is how life isn’t that easy for her and how far she has come already.
This selective dorsal rhizotomy operation or SDR for short will help her in the long term as she grows and it will make physiotherapy less painful for her in all four limbs.
Leonie can not walk unaided and even that is minimal. With the SDR we all want to see what it does to Leonie’s high tone which is especially bad in her legs and right arm.
Please help us to help Leonie get more movement back in her tiny body and to see what difference this will make to her determination to be like you and me.
