Story

Jenson has just turned 5 and has cerebral palsy - spastic hemiplegia. We desperately want him to have surgery in America, it is not currently offered to children with Hemiplegia in the UK. In order to send him to America to undergo this life changing surgery we need to raise in excess of £50,000 so every donation no matter how small would make a world of difference. Please give what you can. This surgery ( Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy ) would remove all the spasticity in Jensons right leg and enable him to walk without the need of ever having to wear leg splints/have botox injections or endure intensive physiotherapy for the rest of his life. Everyday is a struggle and we want more than anything to make Jenson's life easier.

Jenson has now been given a surgery date of the 28th March 2013 ( with the SLCH in America needing the funds 1 month prior at the latest by the 25th February 2013 so the pressure is now really on )

Jenson is nearly 1 year post op and is doing amazingly well. All the hardwork he puts in doing physio, strength & conditioning and sports that he can now participate in, is certainy showing. Check out our FB page jensons journey or FB group Jensons Journey x thanks all
