He told my mummy I had Cerebral Palsy and quite a bit of technical mumble jumble that I think went in one ear and out the other, that was the end of the appointment. My mum came away knowing nothing at all about Cerebral Palsy until she got home and started researching on the Internet. I saw my mummy’s face drop as she read stories and looked at photos.
The following day we went to an appointment with one of my sisters Emilie who, to my mums worst nightmare, had also been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Emilie is lucky she can walk although she is clumsy.
I cannot sit unaided for very long, I pull myself across the floor and I cannot stand or walk. My mummy started doing some research for Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) and has now applied for me to have surgery to help me in my mobility. Unfortunately this comes at a cost for the operation, physio and equipment, which is why it brings me here to my own webpage to just ask all of you who visit to help me please.
I was 4 on 5th November 2011, I was born 10 weeks early and was poorly for quite some time. My mummy only had me at home for 5 days before I stopped breathing and was rushed back into hospital and ventilated for 72 hrs, my mummy and daddy went through a very hard time as they had my 2 older brothers and 2 older sisters to look after as well as travelling 35 miles each way to visit me in hospital.
I am a very happy little girl and always have been, I don’t know any different ;-)
At the age of 20 months I still wasn’t sitting or crawling and mummy knew something wasn’t right. We went to the Childrens Outpatients for a regular appointment and this is where mummy learnt of my fate....
