Jemima's Journey

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Jemima is a nine year old girl with quadriplegic cerebral palsy. She struggles to move independently and in her early years walking was a dream away.

Three years ago we took Jemima to St Louis, USA for life changing surgery on her spine in order to help her to learn to walk, crawl and sit plus all the other life skills we normally take for granted. Since then she has worked incredibly hard with an intense program of rehabilitation, with therapy for a few hours every day. She is very motivated and loves her work outs.  She can now stand for 10 minutes, use a walking frame, crawl, sit on her own for much longer, and her arm function has improved.

Due to her steady progress and also her growth Jemima now needs further surgery to lengthen the muscles in her legs and also her arms.  The US offers a unique opportunity to get this done quickly and with the least invasive technique.  They also operate on arms which is not available in the UK. Jemima is almost independent with feeding, using a computer, driving an electric wheelchair and using a walker on her own - but she needs more help. This surgery will give her a chance to make greater progress and really start to do things on her own. She will be 10 later this year and we really feel she deserves to do the things her friends can do.

Please help us to make Jemima's dreams come true and give her the best life chances.  If you can make a donation of support we will be most grateful and the funds will be put to great use on our journey towards an independent and happy life.
