A campaign to fundraise for much needed therapies for Lois Bluebell to lead a fuller life.
Lois and Daphne are our beautiful twin daughters. They are three and half years old from Manchester and are identical, although they are very different because Lois has Cerebral Palsy. This is caused by a bleed on her brain as a result of a shortage in oxygen at some point during her delivery.
Lois Bluebell received a diagnosis at 2 weeks old. The impact was devastating and we grieved for her, her sister and the things that they wouldn’t do together and for our family.
The injury has affected her movement, coordination and muscle tone. There are many things she isn’t able to do such as sit up, swallow safely, talk or walk.
With time we began to focus on loving her, including her and helping her to reach her full potential. At 5 months old we began neuro rehab therapy including HBOT oxygen therapy, CPT, conductive education and sensory therapy as well as traditional physiotherapy and sensory exercises.
Since taking part in neuro rehab therapies we have seen Lois improve cognitively and physically too.
She has grown into a funny, clever, happy and determined little girl.
She has began to say a few words. She can commando crawl using her upper body and her reflux and respiratory problems have improved dramatically.
We see Lois’s determination to learn and improve every day. We desperately want to give her every opportunity to do so and to exceed all of our expectations!
We carry out her therapy every day but know we can do more by raising funds so that she can have stem cell therapy, a HBOT machine that she can access daily and increasing the frequency of her neuro rehab therapy.
