Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My name is Lyra and I’m 2 in February, and I love to laugh, roll like crazy on the floor and play with my big brother, Joseph.
As I grew older, my Mummy and Daddy noticed I wasn’t doing things I should. We saw lots and lots of Doctors who say I may have Cerebral Palsy, but I am still having tests.
It means that I can’t walk or talk, and really struggle to sit on my own. I have to do lots of physio everyday – even if I don’t want to – I also have muscle spasms which means my little body can’t move and locks up. BUT I started to crawl in September, and now Mummy has put up special gates, but they smile and say they ‘love it’.
Mummy and Daddy want to take me to have intensive Oxygen Therapy in Slovakia which helps children with neurological problems. It will be hard work because I will have to do about 5 hour’s physio a day and I’ll miss my Daddy and Brother.
I’ll also need to find someone to help me do my extra physio in between my sessions with the nice ladies at the hospital.
Mummy and Daddy are planning lots of events and you can find them on my Facebook page ‘Lyra Can’... and my brother is even going to do a sponsored silence!?!
He really wants me to shout his name and chase him, as much as I want to chase him!
