Raising the bar for campaign to help Henry’s bid to walk

A Stafford family trying to raise cash to help their son fulfil his dream of walking unaided will hold a fund-raiser in the town on Saturday.

Kerrie and Jacob Gibbs are trying to pull in £50,000 to fund life-changing surgery for their son Henry.

He was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at the age of two and has a condition called spastic diplegia, which means he has increased muscle tone in his legs, causing stiffness and leaving him unable to stand or walk independently.

Kerrie and Jacob launched the Stop Being Tight campaign in June to pull in pounds for the Just4Children charity so it can support Henry in getting life-changing selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery and follow-up physiotherapy. Without SDR Henry will face regular Botox treatments and leg casting throughout his entire life and will ultimately need a wheelchair.
