Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Silje is a 28 year old norwegian woman living with the disorder Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy.
Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy is a disorder that causes problems with movement and balance due to a brain injury that occurs during brain development. Sometimes cerebral palsy is noticed soon after birth, but in other children, the disorder won’t be noticed until later.
Silje live daily with painful spasms in her legs and need this surgery to take away the spasms.
Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy is a neurosurgical technique used to treat spasticity (increased muscle tone) in the lower limbs.
We have found a hospital, in The UK that want's to go through with this surgery.
Silje will be needing equipment in helping her ough an initial recovery period, intensive daily physiotherapy, and another trip to The UK to, monitor Silje's progress.
In addition there will be living costs for Silje, me (her partner) and her family during the time of operation, through physiotheraphy and checkups in The UK.
In Norway where we live, hospitals don’t have this type of surgery procedure (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy). The Norwegian government has different views about how old a person should be in order to have this surgery.
All donations to make Silje's ultimate wish come true is received with the biggest ever life changing ‘thank you’ we could possible give.
We also hope that you can help us in raising awareness for our fundraiser, by sharing the llink for this fundraiser (and our social websites) through your social media websites.
