Fundraising for Millie’s life-changing operation hits £37,000

More than £37,000 has been raised for a life-changing operation for a two-year-old Staffordshire girl.

It is hoped that Millie Bea Hughes, who lives in Abbots Bromley, and has spastic diplegia cerebral palsy, can one day walk. At the moment, the condition means that the youngster has restricted muscle movement and relies on a walking frame or being supported to get around.

Millie’s parents, Natalie and Chris, want to raise £40,000 for her to undergo selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR), which involves opening up Millie’s back to find and then split the rootlets in her spine to relieve the stiffness.

Fundraising is pouring in every day for the two-year-old, who has a twin brother called Evan Ray.
