Weʼve raised £9,895 to Take Eva to America for specialist treatment.

James and I are raising money to take our eldest daughter, Eva, to the Napa Center in America, for an intensive course of physiotherapy. Eva has got cerebral palsy which affects the muscle tone in her body. She is currently unable to stand or walk independently, which can be extremely frustrating for her. Eva is a bright, bubbly and chatty little girl, but her physical disability prevents her from joining in with her friends and doing all the things that she would like to do. Eva is 3 years old and will therefore be starting school in September next year; we want to give her the best start to school by helping her become as physically independent as possible, and that is where the Napa Center comes in..
The Napa Center in Los Angeles is a world- renowned therapy centre that helps children with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions to achieve their full potential. They have amazing therapists and employ different styles of physiotherapy that are not available in the UK. They have offered Eva a three-week block of intensive treatment which, along with Eva's determined personality, will help her on her road to being able to walk independently. The Napa Center is usually booked up a year in advance so we were lucky that they had a spare slot in December. We would greatly appreciate any donations to help towards this life-changing trip. Please feel free to share this link.
To help raise funds, James and I will be running the Greenwich 10K on 21st October. For those of you who know us, we are pretty unfit, so training will need to start ASAP!! We will keep you updated with how well (badly) it is going!

Just over one week in to her therapy at the Napa Center, in Los Angeles, and Eva is doing amazingly. She has responded so well to the various types of physiotherapy that they do here and is even starting to take steps on her own in a lightweight walker. Thank you for all of your donations that have helped to make this possible. Naomi and James xx
