My daughter Katouche Goll (d.o.b. 29.06.1997) was diagnosed with spastic diplegia following her birth trauma. This is cerebral palsy that mainly affects her lower limbs, and she has needed mobility support since she was two. She also had Erbs Palsy which affected her whole right arm. Her movement of the arm and her sensitivity to temperature and pain was severely reduced, and she suffered burns and had surgery to her hand as a result. Thankfully, this is now minimized and she has full use of the arm and hand, although it is larger than her left arm and hand. She needs ongoing Conductive Education at the Peto Insititute in Budapest, Hungary, and surgical intervention, to correct her feet, to loosen and lengthen muscles and correct her posture

Dear Tree of Hope Children’s Charity,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to improve my walking once again. Since I have been here, I have progressed in leaps and bounds. I am now able to do more things than before, e.g. I have a steadier balance, I’m able to walk backwards as well as walk up and down stairs unaided. I had to work particularly hard to bring my heels further down due to my rapid growth, in an effort to maintain my standard of walking.

I have been able to apply the skills learnt in the sessions to outside the session:

  • Walking around the whole of Budapest
  • Cycling along side my family
  • Getting on and off transport

I have been able to purchase insoles that are made for my feet alone and so improve and maintain my walking whilst I’m in the UK. We have scheduled meetings with Orthopedic surgeon for possible intervention.

I can’t wait to come back in the summer, to make progress and I hope that you will be able to support us again.
