Story

Katie is 15 years old from Belfast, at age 10 months she was diagnosed with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy which effects her limbs. Katies condition is a form of brian damge that makes all of her muscles abnormally tight and has left her using an electric wheel chair for mobility. Although her condition is very painful and requires constant medical attention she is a very smart, funny and strong young Lady who brings alot of joy to all around her.
During 2014 she deveopled further complications when her spine
collapsed leavng her with Scoliosis of the spine. November 2015 she under went a rebuild of her spine (image below) which was very suessful!

We are trying to raise funds to allow Katie to have Hydrotherapy at home as this is currently only possible at School and limited to once a week (sometimes none). Hydrotherapy relieves alot of muscle tightness, pain and pressures associated with her conditon which is currently not NHS funded. Thanks for reading and we appreciate your help.
