Katie and Emma Need Your Help to Walk.

You can help Katie and Emma walk unaided for the first time by donating.

Katie and Emma are 15 year old twins and have Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy. One of the symptoms that affects them is that it causes tightness in their legs, so they are unable stand or to walk independently.

National charity, Caudwell Children, is supporting Katie and Emma and other children and young people like them 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 £85,000 to help send the twins to the St Louis Children’s Hospital for the SDR operation and to pay for up to 2 years of specialist physiotherapy for Katie and Emma 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 the twins and other children and young people needing this treatment.

Anyone interested in helping the Katie's and Emma's Wish to Walk: The Twins Appeal is asked to contact Caudwell Children on 01782 600114 or donate online at

or text TWIN47 £(amount) to 70070

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