    Story

    Thank you for taking the time to view our Crowd Funding page. We are doing a sponsored walk on Sunday 4th September from East Leake to the Queen's Medical Centre to raise awareness of DDH and also raise much needed funds for Ward D34 at QMC, the Occupational Therapists and the charity STEPS. The money raised will be split equally between all three as a thank you for the support and care they gave Amelia and her family over the last few months.

    Here is Amelia's story...

    This is Amelia. She is 20 months old and was born with Developmental Dysplasia of the hip (DDH). Within 72 hours of a baby being born, their hips will be checked as part of the newborn physical examination. Unfortunately in Amelia's case this went undetected. At 16 months old Amelia was referred to an Orthopaedic Paediatrician and after an x-ray was diagnosed with DDH. Amelia was booked in for an operation called a Femoral and Pelvic Osteotomy to correct her dislocated hip and counter act the leg length discrepancy. Following the operation, Amelia has to wear a Hip Spica for 3 months to encourage her hip to stay in place. She will then need further surgery to remove a metal plate currently holding her femur in place but all being well, will then have happy, healthy hips!
    Although DDH isn't life threatening or life limiting nobody wants to see their children suffering in pain or having to face surgery at such a young age. It has been a really difficult time but has been made so much easier by all the staff at QMC. The Orthopaedic Clinic has been amazing, working with our fantastic Consultant Doctor Lawniczek, Janet and all the staff on Ward D34, particularly Catherine Livingstone. The Occupational Therapists Estella and Hannah and the charity STEPS have all helped us out so much. Together they have supported us through this difficult time and made it all so much easier.

    Thank you very much for reading and donating.
