Believe in Hope
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Hello, my name is Hope and I have Cerebral Palsy affecting both of my arms and legs. Me and my identical twin sister Ava were born very early at just 27 weeks and I only weighed 750g. At 18 months I was diagnosed with Quadraplegic spastic dystonic Cerebral Palsy. I am now 7 years old and even though I am a happy, cheeky and beautiful little girl I cannot sit, stand or walk unaided. I really want to be able to do as much as my body will let me.
I currently attend private physio at Kids Physio Works twice a week to enable me to become much stronger in my body, core, balance, confidence and even speech. I also need some private sessions to develop my speech. However as you can imagine both of these therapies are costly. We have had to move house so we can build adaptations around the home like a lift, wet room and ramps everywhere so that I can be more mobile, safe and happy at home with my twin sister, big brother and parents. I may also qualify for potential operations in the future which may not be funded by the NHS as well as essential equipment as I outgrow my current ones.
I am extremely lucky to have a lot of support from people who want to fundraise for me as you can see from my fundraising total. However we have already had to use a lot of that total to pay for my therapy which costs just under £1,000 a month. So I still need your help to keep these going. I will make sure I work hard to ensure your money is well spent. Thank you from me, Ava, Ben, Mummy and Daddy. x x x x
