Story

Kiera was born at 35 weeks, after my wife's waters had broken at 29 weeks, with PVL brain injury. She also has Autism and Mild Left Sided Hemiplegia.

It became obvious quite quickly that Kiera was a happy determined little girl who wanted to be mobile. With the help of Chiropractic treatment and Physio she was able to crawl at 15 months and walk at 2 years.

She tried hard at school despite learning difficulties and poor working memory. She also struggled with sensory overload until it reached the state she could no longer cope with a classroom environment.

The only thing that would help with her overload was Dogs,Wolves and Horses. Through her love of dogs she began to engage in learning and the outside world again.

With puberty Kieras brain reset and many of her life and working memory skills were lost. Although she had full time support at school she hasnt been able to attend and has had to relearn day to day self care. Her left, weaker side of her body is not growing as it should due to the right side taking the strain of keeping her mobile. She has daily physio and wants to engage with the outside world again, but is struck with anxiety, panic and sensory overload. She barely leaves the house, or even her room and has frequent meltdowns. We were at our wits end when her Dr suggested an assisstance/support dog.

We found http://www.autismdogs.co.uk/ and after a successsful visit Kiera has been accepted onto their programme. But, its not cheap.

    On Saturday 22nd August We completed the milestone and we DID 1 MILLION 4 THOUSAND AND 53 STEPS. I would like to thank Dan in helping me on most of the walks and we was supported by his brother as well, on some. even Kiera helped out on some when she was able. I am sad that we didn't meet our target of £1500 and we only raised £127, But I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the people who did donate. I am dissapointed that my peers did not help and now I can rest my shin splits at last.

    So far we have walked 720,237 steps, but I have incurred an injury called Shin Splits and for the last 2 days I have had to rest and I will have to resume back tomorrow because we got a mountain to climb to reach the million by 22nd August. So the target to reach is 279,673 and we have been advised that Noodles is coming on 29th September and we are £2700 short of target to bring him home. Please see a picture of Noodle.

KIERA HAS BEEN MATCHED WITH A DOG. We really need to push much harder this coming week to get back on Target with the steps. Please can you keep my son motivated by Sponsoring us,as he really wants to achieve the target and help his Sister.
