Weʼre raising £100,000 to help 4 year old Oscar walk unaided and fund his aftercare

Story

UPDATE - Over £60,000 has been raised to date, Oscar had his SDR operation (which is described in the original story below) mid January 2022 in London, it was a success and Oscar has amazed everyone with his tenacity, strength, speedy recovery and rehabilitation.
He will walk the Bristol Rovers team out on their last home game of the 2022 season at the Memorial Stadium and will be an emotional moment for Oscar and his family.
Thank you everyone who has made this possible. Fundraising is still needed for the ongoing physiotherapy, appointments, equipment so thank you for whatever you may be able to contribute.

THE ORIGINAL STORY
Oscar Cridge is an amazing young man who is 4 years old, he has cerebral palsy and needs a life-changing SDR operation to walk unaided, with everyone's help this is possible.

The biggest hope is a surgical procedure called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which, although invasive, has an extremely high success rate and in the vast majority of cases significantly improves the patient’s quality of life. The procedure aims to reduce spasticity (tight and stiff muscle tone) in the lower limbs; this will reduce the amount of pain he experiences. The operation also improves mobility and increases independence. We are hopeful, that eventually, it will lead to Oscar being able to walk independently.

    The support from everyone to get 4 year old Oscar his life-changing operation has been overwhelming, especially despite the Pandemic. I would love to hit the target before Christmas if possible, as I think it would be the best Christmas present EVER for Oscar & his mum and dad. At the time of writing this update, there is about £6500 left to get to the £25000 target. I'm going to do all I can to try and achieve this, I think it can be done. THANK YOU EVERYONE If you can help in ANY way please contact me best wishes Daz dazdazzle@live.co.uk

    Thank you very much all the kind, generous people who have supported in anyway up until now, whether by donating money, their time, theirs skills, services or however, it's massively appreciated and we're getting closer to the target for this young man :-) At the time of writing this we still need just over £16,000 of the £25,000 life-changing SDR operation money, so I'm doing all I can to try and reach this target as soon as possible It's been a tremendous response, especially during the Pandemic, between us we will get there, thanks Daz
