Story

Jamie is 4 years old from Liverpool. He suffered 2 significant bleeds on his brain after being born at 30 weeks and was subsequently diagnosed with cerebral palsy. As a result, Jamie suffers from extreme muscle tightness in his legs and cannot stand or walk unaided.

We have been advised that Jamie is a good candidate for  a life changing operation called SDR (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy) which would greatly reduce this tightness, but this is not currently funded by the NHS. This procedure would immeasurably improve Jamie’s quality of life and may even allow him to stand on his own two feet in future. He would also need at least two years of intensive physiotherapy afterwards to maximise the benefits.

In spite of the health problems Jamie has suffered from, he has rarely complained about what life has dealt him and he has endured all his treatment like a trooper. We are now in the perfect window for the SDR operation.

Any donation would be greatly appreciated and would help Jamie fulfil the potential we know he has.
