Just4Children are fundraising for vital physiotherapy sessions and specialised equipment to help Noah aged 5 months old from Preston reach his full potential and to improve his quality of life.
Our lives were turned upside down on the 17th November 2020 when our beautiful baby boy was born lifeless. He was quickly whisked away to intensive care and was placed on life support. At that time we didn’t know if Noah would survive. He received cooling mat treatment to prevent further brain damage but unfortunately the damage had already been done. A week later we received the devastating news that the MRI showed a moderate to severe brain injury and Noah had suffered Grade three HIE – Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy which basically means a lack of oxygen to the brain.
Noah has fought his way to be here and continues to amaze us every single day. Due to his brain injury Noah has been further diagnosed with a number of disorders including: Dystonia with painful muscle spasms, Cerebral Palsy, CVI or cognitive vision impairment, unsafe swallow currently tube fed, GORD Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and possible seizure activity. Despite all of this Noah is a determined little boy who has an infectious smile. We are so proud of Noah and want to be able to give him the best life possible.
Early intervention is key and therapy is the only way to to enable Noah to have the opportunity to gain more head control, to sit and hopefully walk! We want to provide Noah with weekly therapy sessions and to buy the more specialised equipment needed. Please help Noah to reach his full potential! Thank you for your support, it means so much to us and Noah.
