Just4Children are fundraising for Olivia to have Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery, physiotherapy and then any equipment or mobility aids post surgery that will assist in her mobility.

Olivia is aged 5 from Telford in Shopshire. She was born prematurely at 28 weeks in May 2016 weighing 3lb 2oz. She was in hospital for just over 10 weeks and had to battle various infections such as sepsis, necrotizing enterocolitis (nec), chest infections and more.

In December 2016 Olivia had an MRI scan and was later diagnosed with Bilateral spastic cerebral palsy.

Olivia suffers with severe muscle tightness in her lower body and as a result is in constant pain and discomfort.

Olivia is now 5 years old and has been put forward to have life changing surgery called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which will help reduce tightness in her legs drastically and will help her mobility in the future.

She will also need a further 2 years of intense physiotherapy and any further specialist equipment that will help her reach her goal of one day walking.

Unfortunately, the surgery and Intense physiotherapy is not funded by the NHS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
