Story

Please help me raise money for my son to have on-going after care following his SDR surgery he has to have private physiotherapy plus extra equiptment.

Oliver was born at 32 weeks and was in special care for over 3 months with a stomach infection.  This made him very unwell and made the first few months of his life very difficult.  At such a young age I got a glimpse of what a determined little guy Oliver is because he faught off the infection and came home.

As Oliver grew, I began to notice that his physical development wasnt as quick as his peers so I saught medical advice.  At 18 months old, he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsey Spastic Diapligia.  The extent of the condition was unclear at this stage so the past 12 months have been none stop physiothereapy and various other medical appointments. Now he is nearly 3 years old and is only able to walk with a walking frame. He needs regular physio and has to wear splints on his legs.

Without the surgery it is highly likely that Oliver will need a walking aid and further treatfment for the rest of his life.

Oliver is the most determined little boy anyone could ever meet.  He doesnt let his condition get him down in anyway and just gets on with life. He loves nothing more than playing with his friends.

Even though Oliver wouldnt complain, as his mother it breaks my heart when he is left behind as his friends run off to kick a football or to bounce on the trampoline.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Should we exceed the target amount (or if we do not raise enough funds, or if they cannot be used for any other reason) the funds raised will go to the general funds of Tree of Hope to assist other sick children.

What in God’s name are the NHS playing at, It would take £100,000's to make that slapper look anything other than another hideous Jordan mutant! Hope the little lad gets well very soon.

Unfortunately, my partner, Andrew Dodd is too old to have the operation. I really hope the operation helps your son to live a normal life. Is there any way we can follow his progress?
