Hello, My name is Louis bishop

Mummy and I had a very difficult time when she was pregnant with me. We spent a lot of time in hospital and I required 5 in utero blood transfusions where donor blood was injected into mummies tummy to help me.

I was born 7 weeks prematurely, mummy and daddy couldn’t have been happier, everything was ok and I arrived safely.

When I was 3 days old mummy and daddy were told news that they were not expecting, a head scan was  abnormal and a MRI scan at 5 days old confirmed I had suffered severe brain damage.

Mummy and daddy asked lots of questions, doctors told them that my condition would have a huge impact on my life and that of my family. All we could do was wait and see if I met my milestones.

I am now 4 years old and have a diagnoses of quadriplegic cerebral palsy, all 4 of my limbs are effected. I am unable to sit up, walk or talk and also have problems with eating and drinking so I am fed via a gastrostomy  but I always have the biggest smile for everyone, I just love people and being out and about.

I require intensive physiotherapy and hydrotherapy as I have very increased tone which make things painful and difficult. As I get older I will require lots of specialist equipment including a through floor lift and ceiling hoists at home to be able to continue my progress, to stay healthy and increase my independence and allow me to be upstairs with my family. This is where we need your help, to get the amount of therapy and equipment that I need we have to pay for some of it privately but I need it to keep me smiling and be the happy little boy everyone knows and loves !

Thank you for reading my story and I’m a very lucky little boy to have so many wonderful people looking out for me
