Please help Roxi walk
Our daughter Roxi is nearly two years old and has Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy. One of the symptoms is that it causes a painful, tightness in her legs, so unlike most children her age she is unable to walk independently.
We realised that something was wrong when at the age of one she hadn’t reached the usual milestones such as touching her toes, rolling over, crawling, sitting up or walking.
Finally a diagnosis was made and now with the support of national charity Caudwell Childrenwe are desperately trying to raise £50,000 to fund the SDR treatment, post-operative physiotherapy and equipment Roxi will need to build up her strength at home.
SDR is a complicated procedure which involves cutting some of the sensory nerve fibres that come from the muscles and enter the spinal cord.
Eventually after a great deal of hard work and therapy, Roxi will hopefully walk unaided and pain-free for the first time. This will give her the life and the independence that she deserves.
To do this we need donations for as much or as little as you can give, to raise much needed funds for our beautiful little girl.
We hope that you will help make this dream come true.
You can also donate to the Help Roxi Walk Appeal by contacting Caudwell Children on 01782 600867, or text Roxi47£(amount) to 70070.
Important note to donors: As long as Roxi requires funds to pay for treatment, Caudwell Children will manage all payments of funds for the family. All donations made will be added to the Caudwell Children SDR Fund and will be used to help Roxi and other children with Cerebral Palsy in the UK receive this life-changing treatment.
