Weʼre raising £500 to help fund Adaptive Equipment for Tia Rose
- Longridge, Preston, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Meet Tia Rose, who lives in Longridge, Lancashire with her beautiful little family. She is a happy funny lively little girl who is soon to be 1 years old in August.
Tia was starved of oxygen after a traumatic birth and needed intensive hospital care for the first few months of her life.
At 8 months old Tia was diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebral Palsy. Spastic Diplegia affects the legs and arms making them stiff and contracted, this makes crawling and walking difficult and most children will walk with a wide "scissor gate". Legs can turn inwards and cross at the knees due to excessive muscle contractions. Other children may not be able to walk at all.
Tia requires extra support, her right side is much weaker than her left side which has an impact on sitting and eating independently.
We are determined to give her the best in life and to make everything possible for her. Even the simplest of things such as a swing on the park or riding around in a supermarket trolley are impossible without specialised equipment.
As Tia grows and develops she will need a lot of extra support and adaptive equipment which is very expensive, any help towards these costs would be greatly appreciated to give her the support she desperately needs.
Thank you for reading. Please send positive vibes our way and share this page with your network and friends!
