Susanna Needs Your Help to Walk.
You can help Susanna walk for the very first time unaided by donating.
Susanna is 4 years old and has Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy. One of the symptoms that affect Susanna is that it causes tightness in her legs, so she is unable stand or to walk independently.
National charity, Caudwell Children, is supporting Susanna and other children like her by raising money to fund ground breaking treatments and physiotherapy which can help children with Cerebral Palsy walk independently for the first time.
The treatment is called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) and has a 100% success rate from the St Louis Children’s Hospital in Missouri. They have been carrying out this operation now for over 25 years.
The aim is to raise £60,000 to help send Susanna to the St Louis Children’s Hospital for the SDR operation and to pay for up to 2 years of specialist physiotherapy for Susanna and other children with Cerebral Palsy.
To do this we will need as much or as little as you can give, to raise the much needed funds for Susanna and her friends.
Anyone interested in helping the Susanna Petersbursca Appeal is asked to contact Caudwell Children on 01782 600114 or to donate online visit www.justgiving.com/helpsusannawalk
Important note to donors: As long as Susanna requires funds to pay for treatment in the United States, 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 Susanna and other children with Cerebral Palsy in the UK receive life-changing treatment, equipment and therapy.
