My name is Lyra from Cannock and I’m 3, and I love to laugh, sing and play with my big brother, Joseph.

When I was little Mummy and Daddy noticed I wasn’t doing things I should. We’ve seen lots of doctors who say I have Global Developmental Delay and other issues with how my brain works. I am still having lots of tests.

I had to work really hard to learn to walk and I still can’t say much more than ‘Mummy’ or ‘Daddy’. I have muscle spasms which mean my body can’t move and locks up and I struggle to chew my food. I do lots of physio to help me improve how I get around and I’m working hard to learn how to tell people what I want.

Mummy has taken me to Slovakia three times now for treatments which help children with neurological problems. I might have to go again! It’s hard work because I do about 5 hour’s physio a day and I miss my Daddy and Brother.

The money we’ve raised has really helped me progress, but we need to keep going to pay for other things that can help me do everything a three year old should.

Mummy and Daddy are planning lots of events and you can find them on my Facebook page ‘Lyra Can’…
