    Story

    Coopas wish to walk

    Coops is a very special,very brave,bright little girl who lives life as happy as any other 5 year old girl does,but struggles to do as any other 5 year old girl does.
    coopa has a condition which means she is unable to walk or even stand unaided.
    Coopa was born 7 weeks premature which left her on a high dependacy ward needing help to breathe for 2 weeks.
    When coopa was 18 months old she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy,mainly affecting her legs.coopa has been given treatment for the last 3 years which as involved physiotherapy/medication/Botox injections to try and relax her muscles in her legs.not having much success with these treatments coopa as now been given the opportunity to have a possible life changing operation (SDR)
    SELECTIVE DORSAL RHIZOTOMY is an operation that helps children with stiffness(spasticity) in their legs due to cerebral palsy. The procedure involves cutting a number of sensory nerves in the lower spine.The reason for cutting sensory nerves is that the messages from these nerves are abnormal in children with cerebral palsy leading to stiffness(spasticity)
    Now unfortunately this operation is not funded by the NHS and costs a massive £14,314 for the operation and the aftercare (intense physiotherapy)costs an extra £20,000
    We are hoping to raise these funds to change our little girls life in the very near future..

    All donations are very much appreciated as are suggestions/ideas on fundraising events

    THANK YOU

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
