Oisin has quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Just4Children are raising funds to provide him with the specialist equipment and therapies he needs to help him reach his full potential.
Oisin was born on the 27th May 2018 weighing 950 grams after I developed sepsis and was rushed for an emergency C-section. This was a day we both came very close to losing our lives.
Oisin is now almost 3 years old and a real life little miracle with the most infectious smile. He has been through so much in his short life, spending the first 7 months in NICU where he had some major ups and downs. He was nearly lost multiple times and being told he would never make it home, with multiple surgeries and hospital visits, he continues to face new challenges on a daily basis.
We now know that Oisin has quadriplegic cerebral palsy among other conditions. This means he has difficulties with muscle control, balance and coordination, so simple things such as sitting without support is extremely difficult. He is unable to crawl, stand or walk and is completely tube fed. He is incredibly determined and tries so hard every day to learn these things.
Essentially Oisin has the potential IF we put in enough early intervention but sadly the NHS can’t provide what he needs. So, we are fundraising for Just4Children to provide Oisin with the specialist equipment and therapies he needs to help him reach his full potential.
