Just4Children are fundraising for specialist equipment for Olivia to help and improve her muscle power, strength and tone.

Hello! My name is Olivia (Liv). I am 11 years old and I have Cerebral Palsy… 

I was born early and in an emergency due to my Mum having a uterine abruption at 31 weeks. Fortunately for us both my Mum was in hospital due to a bleed and that bleed saved our lives because we were in the right place at the right time. However, there were complications at my birth and those resulted in my Cerebral Palsy.

I was fortunate to have undergone SDR surgery when I was 5, almost 6 years ago now and that made a real difference when I was smaller. However, now I’m older and constantly battling gravity and growth I’m finding that my mobility is not what it was. Even though I am in continuous and constant receipt of physiotherapy it seems to be making very little difference in maintaining my mobility and I’m relying more and more on my wheelchair which makes me sad.

My Mum and Dad have come across some equipment that will make a significant difference to the aches and pains I suffer and will decrease the tightness in my legs and will hopefully give me back my mobility. It may even help me walk unaided one day!

So, I find myself here asking for any donation at all to raise the £5,000.00 needed to help me buy the Galileo S35 to help me help myself.

Thank you for reading my story.
