Footprints for Pollie
Just4Children wish to raise funds to help with Pollie’s therapies to enable her to be the best she can possibly be.
Pollie is from Doncaster and was born extremely premature at 24 weeks in June 2010, weighing only 1lb 10oz. She suffered a significant brain bleed and was very poorly during her 23 week stay in hospital. As a result of this difficult start in life she has been diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy.
At around 10 months old we started to realise that Pollie wasn’t meeting her milestones so we made the decision to look beyond the NHS and into private and alternative therapies. These amazing therapies have enabled Pollie to get to the stage that she is at today.
Pollie is now 8 years old and is due to have major surgery on her hips in November 2018. After this Pollie will need many hours of intensive therapies to get her back to and beyond where she is today. She will continue with hydrotherapy and intensive physiotherapy in the UK, while in summer 2019 we have managed to secure a place at the world renowned NAPA Center in America.
Thank you for your support.
