Robyn is 18 years old.
At 6 months old concerns were raised about her health and underwent many tests including . One of her conditions was diagnosed as ocular motor appraxia, this condition effects eye movements , depth perception, Cognitive function and delays all mile stones and underwent operations on both eyes.
Robyn also has rare conditions meaning that specific diagnosis would be difficult if not impossible.
Specialists said . 'She won't walk and would only ever be ok in her world' We searched and found 'stick n step' a charity provide help with independence. She has attended since being 4 and remains with them today.
At one stage Alderhey gave us news no parent should hear, the likelihood her condition was degenerative only to be told a year later this wasn’t the case.
We still do not have a diagnosis.
5 years ago Robyn collapsed and suffered a seizure spending her holiday in hospital.
3 years ago Robyn started the gym with her dad. Whilst training she spotted the Warrington mile challenge. Later that year competed it with help and raised £1500 for 'stick n step'
One year later Robyn competed the 10k raising £2400 for the charity.
Last year she completed the 10k in her modified walker raising even more.
This year she hopes to run the 10k without her walker and just holding hands and hopes to raise even more money for the charity she loves.
She doesn't moan complain or make excuses for her disabilities. She does her best with what she have been given.
