Help alexia walk
Alexia Rose from Weeley in Essex was born at 28 weeks and 2 days weighing 2lb 15oz. We spent 2 months in the special care baby unit where she did really well. When we took her home Alexia had a lot of episodes where she stopped breathing or choked and as she grew we realised she wasn't hitting any milestones and was extremely stiff.
At around 8 months our fears were confirmed when Alexia was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. We started physiotherapy straight away and got referred to endless consultants. At the age of one Alexia was confirmed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy, which affects all four limbs and her back. She is now 19 months old and unable to sit up unaided, crawl, roll over, walk, use her hands properly to pick things up, or be able to play with toys.
We help Alexia with physiotherapy at home daily while she also has physio at the hospital and sees endless doctors but the reason we are fundraising isbecause there Is an operation called the SDR operation which will help Alexia to be able to walk but it is not funded on the NHS.
There is a criteria for this operation and Alexia needs to at least be able to sit unaided. The top consultant says she needs daily hydrotherapy as well as physiotherapy and this will help strengthen her back and loosen her arm and leg muscles, so we are also raising funds for a small hydro pool Alexia can use every single day at home and It is something she will need for the rest of her life.
Should we exceed the target amount or if we do not raise enough funds, or if they cannot be used for any other reason, the funds raised will go to the general funds of Tree of Hope to assist other sick children.
We want what any other parent wants and that's the best out of life for Alexia.
