    I never thought that one day I will have to ask you, my friends, to help us raise money for our gorgeous baby Salma Dahlia.

    Salma is our granddaughter and is 7 months old. She was born prematurely on new years day and due to the festive season and lack of staff on duty we were discharged the next day without proper checks. We were only later diagnosed with the torticollis which basically means one side of the neck muscle is shorter than the other. We did not know at the time but did notice that Salma would only sleep on one side. Never realising the full consequences, we thought it was normal. This was all missed by various health visitors coming to check on her and few trips to the GP to get her routine vaccination shots. Only after 3 months when she travelled to her mummy's home country to meet first time her other side of the family, we have noticed that her head was not evenly round as it should be. We were told by the doctors that she has problems with her neck and we were recommended to go through long painful massages to get her neck to straighten. After only 3 months we manage to get rid of the torticollis neck and she is now freely sleeping and is confidently moving her head in both directions. By this time her head shape has become more and more noticeable and worrying.

    A couple of days ago Salma has undertaken a cranial assessment with Technology In Motion which is a private medical centre, who specialises in helping babies with this kind of problems. Salma was diagnosed with the severe conditions of Plagiocephaly this is when the head is developing incorrectly. She was put in the category of 1% of all infants with a severe asymmetry.

    We were highly recommended to treat her with a specially designed helmet which would be tailored perfectly to help the head develop properly and hopefully after 4 months of wearing the helmet for 23 hrs per day she would have a normal head shape. NHS doesn't cover the cost of this type of treatments. The treatment would cost us £2050.

    We were told in our assessment that it was possible to raise the money. We would like to ask to help fund the cost if this treatment. This is our only hope to make Salma's head normal. Any donations would be really appreciated and go towards Salma’s bright future where she will be a confident gorgeous girl, whom we love so much with all our heart.

    Thank you very much for your help 💖💖💖
