Team Holmes vs Cerebral Palsy
Just4Children seek funds to help improve the lives of twin boys with cerebral palsy – funding physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, specialised equipment and home adaptions.
Charlie and Freddie are aged 4 from Stone in Staffordshire. They made a surprise early arrival in 2014 born at 30 weeks gestation and spending the first 7 weeks of their lives in NICU.
Charlie was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (quadriplegic) soon after birth, while Freddie was diagnosed (diplegic) shortly before his 2nd birthday. Coming to terms with the prospect of having a disabled child is daunting but then the shock of having disabled twins was something we were not prepared for.
There is no cure for cerebral palsy but hopefully we can do everything we can to improve their lives now and in the future.
Freddie has recently been approved to have Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery at Alder Hey Children’s hospital and with your donations for Just4Children we can pay for additional physiotherapy to supplement the NHS sessions and buy equipment to use at home. We would also love to make a wet room adaption to our home which will benefit both boys and make life easier.
Charlie and Freddie are such happy determined boys. We will not let cerebral palsy beat us.
