Just4Children wish to provide Henry with access to therapy and equipment to enable him to be as independent as possible.
Henry is a 10 year old from Midsomer Norton, Somerset who loves to be independent and making people smile. At 12 months old he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy spastic diplegia which most noticeably affects Henry’s lower limbs making him unable to stand or walk unaided. This has never stopped Henry aiming for better mobility and independence with his determined nature helping him along the way.
Henry has received weekly therapy since diagnosis which has become a big part of his life, teaching him the skills to sit, crawl, walk with a walker and now learning to walk with just sticks thus increasing his stamina to go even further. These are skills we all take for granted but Henry has to work extra hard to achieve. In 2020 had Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy to remove the spasticity from his legs. Since then he has continued to access intensive therapy to improve all his skills and give him the independence he needs and deserves.
Just4Children are fundraising to provide Henry with access to therapy, and equipment to enable him to be as independent as possible.
