Mum’s plan to raise £75k so 2-year-old daughter can walk

The mother of a girl who suffers from cerebral palsy is attempting to raise £75,000 so her daughter can have groundbreaking surgery which will enable her to walk.

Natasha Dawson’s daughter, Isabella who has recently turned two, has Spastic Diplegia which is a type of cerebral palsy.

As an identical twin, Natasha was able to notice that her daughter was struggling to walk by comparing her mobility with her sister, Scarlett.

After taking her to the hospital, Natasha discovered that her daughter had Spastic Diplegia which meant that she would be unable to use her legs without support – and she cannot move around freely on flat feet.

But Natasha noticed a surgery, which was pioneered by Dr Parks from St Louis’ Hospital in Missouri, which, if done successfully, will enable Isabella to walk.

Natasha, 24, from Chelmsford, said: “Without this surgery, she will never be able to walk.

“We really want Isabella to receive the treatment in America as she only gets one opportunity and we want her to receive it from the person who pioneered it.
