Rose's daughter, Alice, is a very bright star, who has touched and lightened the hearts of just about everyone who has know her over the last 20 years.
She was born with an extremely complicated cardiac condition resulting in four huge heart operations before she was two. She then developed scoliosis (a severe curvature of the spine) and spent the next nine years in and out of hospital having surgery on her spine. She has never developed the ability to speak. Despite all this she never complains or judges anyone; her gift is to bring out the absolute best in those who are around her.
In order to keep free from pain she needs to keep moving. At the moment she walks holding a hand for support. Six months ago she trialled a Trike at Chailey Heritage and she LOVED it! Rose was surprised by how eager and brave she was, and how confidently she balanced. It offers something new for her to learn and enables her to strengthen her legs and weight bear. She will have it for life and meet more people in her community,as she pedals and whoops her way along the Brighton seafront!
She brings so much to those in her world and the Trike will bring her huge delight.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
Hopefully we can raise the money to get her a Trike for Christmas and have a Trike Celebration Party in Spring, to which you will all be welcome.
