Just4Children needs your support to fund SDR surgery for Lana to improve the quality of her life.
Please spare 5 minutes to read my story, I need you help to change my future.
My Name is Lana and I am 6 years old from Fareham in Hampshire. I live with my mummy Nickki and my pet tortoise rocket. I have pvl and cerebral palsy and was also recently diagnosed with epilepsy. The doctors said this would prevent me achieving much in life. Well, I will show them!
So far in my short life I’ve learned to sit on the floor independently and play with my toys, I can ride my tricycle, I can stand in my standing frame, I can pull up to stand holding on and I can eat a normal diet as I’m learning to self feed with a spoon. It’s a messy business! I can also drink from a cup without a lid.
I have very good understanding and awareness and I have recently started talking. I can now make myself understood!
My next big goal is to start taking steps. I want to stand tall like my friends. I want to be able to play at their level. Can you help?
I am going to take the brave step of having SDR surgery but sadly I don’t qualify under the NHS so I need to fund this privately. Therefore Just4Children need to raise lots and lots of pennies to help me be just like my friends.
This is potentially life-changing for me and for my future. Please help!
Love Lana xxx
