This very special guy is a 5 year old bou from Duston Northampton. This very charismatic, cheeky, intelligent boy is an absolute marvel. He is a fighter who fought his upmost to live surviving prematurity, life-saving bowel surgery at one day old and countless sepsis infections whilst in NICU. Unfortunately, Harry didn’t come out of this unscathed. He suffered from a brain injury called periventricular leukomalacia which has manifested as spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. This means that Harry’s movements are affected particularly his legs where he is unable to stand or walk unaided. This is a bit of a problem for an active little boy that adores rugby, strictly come dancing and P.E at school! Harry would love to take that first independent step, maybe succeed in scoring a try.
This dream can come true if Harry undergoes a life-changing operation called selective dorsal rhizotomy which reduces spasticity and help Harry to walk. Unfortunately, this operation is not funded on the NHS nor is the intensive physiotherapy that Harry attends at Footsteps in Oxfordshire which assists with Harry’s rehabilitation. If we succeeded in achieving our fundraising goal, Harry would go to America to receive this pioneering surgery.
Earlier this year we welcomed Harry’s little sister into the world. A bittersweet moment knowing that her little footsteps will come first.
It would mean the world to Harry, his family & his friends to raise this money so that he can join in with playing with his siblings, his friends in the school playground, to take that first, precious step
