Story

Brooke's taking her first steps!!

 

Brooke is 9 years old, she has Cerebral Palsy and was wheelchair bound.

 

in 2012 we raised £75k for Brooke to have a life changing operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), this will make Brooke’s life so much better for her. It’s a special operation for children with spasticity cerebral palsy. This operation has a reported 100% success rate in its 24 year history but it is only currently available in America and more recently Bristol, however not available on our NHS.

She had this operation in Nov 2012 & started walking with a walker in Dec 2012, which is amazing!!

We had hoped with support and contribution to raise the rest of the monies for Brooke's aftercare, as this is just as important as her operation 

 

Please help us change Brooke's life forever.

 

 

Thank you to the Tree of Hope Children’s Charity for all their help.

Brooke is just over 10 months post op & is doing fabulously, she has 5 days a week Physio (3days with a private Physio) & she is getting stronger everyday. She returns back to the USA to see DR Park on 25th November. We still are raising funds for her after care as this is vital.

Merry Christmas everyone! We returned home last week from the USA & the 2 operations were a huge success & Brooke is getting on great although there is still a long way to go for us all. Our total money raised to date is £65,800. Let's give a final push in 2012 to get to 70K.

We have currently raised a total off £57.287.03, Brooke's operation has been successfully paid for & will go ahead on the 15th November. Thankyou so much to everyone who has got us this far, our daughters dream is so much closer now. We just need a final push to hit £70K. xx
