Story

Help Kai Walk

You can help Kai get his wish to walk by donating

Kai is 3 years old and has Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy. One of the symptoms is that it causes a painful, tightness in his legs, so he is unable to walk independently.

National charity, Caudwell Children, is supporting Kai and other children like him by raising money  to fund ground breaking treatments and physiotherapy which can help children with Cerebral palsy walk independently for the first time.

We need your help to raise £58,000 to send Kai to St Louis, Missouri to have Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), 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, which will see Kai’s life changed dramatically as he will hopefully walk unaided and pain-free for the first time.  This will give him the life that he deserves and I hope that you will help us in making his dream come true.

To do this we need donations for as much or as little as you can give, to raise the much needed funds for this bright and charming little boy and his friends.

Anybody interested in supporting the Kickstart for Kai Appeal is asked to contact Caudwell Children on 01782 600867, donate online at www.justgiving.com/kickstartforkai or text KAIH50(amount) to 70070.

Important note to donors: As long as Kai 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 Kai and other children with Cerebral Palsy in the UK receive this life-changing treatment.
