Story

We are aiming to raise £6000 to be able to send Emma to the Footsteps centre in Oxford for Spider therapy. We have been offered a possibility of having 2 sessions throughout 2017. A 1 week session and another 19 day session.
This year 2016 ,we managed to raise £3500 to be able to send Emma to Footsteps in Oxford
http://footstepscentre.com/
at footsteps they use what is called spider therapy where they are able to through the spider, strengthen her muscles. When she went there she was able to walk approximately 30 steps unaided with her metal splints on her legs. After 19 days in Oxford having 2 hours a day therapy she proudly announced that she had walked 330 steps in her splints on her own which was amazing.

Emma-Grace was born with Arthrogryposis which means that she has limited or no muscles in her arms and legs. Her limbs were twisted and did not work properly. At the age of 8 she has already had several major operations at London’s Great Ormond Street hospital. She will probably have them regularly throughout her life.
Emma is unable walk unaided.
Emma is amazingly brave and has been through so much already in life, yet she is such an inspiration. She is such a resilient and peaceful child who laughs off life's difficulties. She has 1-1 support in school because of her physical disabilities and she is excelling in most things that she does. She puts in 100% effort in all she does. Facebook Emma-Grace Andrews to see her progress.

    This is Emma as a toddler although she was unable to toddle as she spent half her life with both legs in plaster. Always smiling though...
