    Hi I'm Mia-Olivia

    Thank you for taking the time to read my story

    I'm 9 years old & was born missing a Fibula bone to my right leg.
    My right leg was also 5cm, shorter than my left leg

    As I've grown so have my complications

    My Femur & Tibia are growing at a slower rate on my right side this has twisted my pelvis and caused scoliosis causing pressure on my neck. My rib frame is also narrower leaving me unable to fully inflate my left lung causing me breathlessness. The pressure on my back and neck causes me to have extreme head aches

    I started having intervention from 3 months old. I had my right leg serial casked weekly to encourage the Tibia bone to grow straight

    By 18 months I had my first surgery fusing my ankle, so I could wear a shoe with a raise & learn to walk

    By the time I was 5, my right leg was 9cm shorter than my left, leaving me unable to walk & needing complex lengthening surgery

    I was in a Ilizarov frame for 9 months and managed to gain 7cm in length

    The surgery was very painful, it consisted of my leg being broken & 16 pins being fitted through the bone to form an external frame, which could be stretched to increase the gap between the break and encourage new bone to grow

    Since then I've had 3 other corrective operations, but my bones are still growing slower than my left side meaning, I've had to have another leg frame

    I'm again in another Ilizarov frame with 15 pins going through my leg. We've managed to stretch my leg by another 5cm making it a
    a whopping 12cm in total

    This has come with excruciating pain & left me unable to walk unaided or properly

    My mum is getting me as much phyiso as possible.
    The NHS can only fund 1 session a week, but I need to go daily, to help build my muscles & re-alien my leg so I can learn to walk again

    We are raising the funds to help towards my physio/chiro costs and get me back on my feet

    Please share my story & donate if you can

    Lets help Mia to walk again

      An up date on Mia-Olivia, Mia has still got her llizarov frame on her right leg, she is having ultra sound on the new bone growth, to help strengthen the bone, she is also having physio to help her to be able to walk again, she is doing well, but still finds it difficult to put her heel down. All the money you have helped to raise, is going on Mia's physio & when she has her frame taken off, she will need physio regularly & also chiropractic to help with back & hip. Thank you & Just Giving Crowdfund, every penny raised will help Mia so much Xx
