Fixing Seth's Flat
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Our son Seth has been diagnosed with very severe Plagiocephaly with misalignment of his ears and facial asymmetry. This means Seth has a very flat area on the right hand side of his head which has also caused his forehead to be more prominent on this side as well as altering the position of his ears.
This was all caused by Torticollis, a problem with Seth's neck muscles that made it difficult for him to turn his head to the left resulting in too much pressure being placed on the right side of Seth's skull causing it to become flat.
Seth has now had physiotherapy to correct the issue with the muscle with his neck but despite our best efforts with repositioning Seth's flat area has remained.
We have now been advised that there is nothing further the Nhs will do to help as they claim this is a cosmetic issue.
Seth will now be seen privately by Technology in Motion, a specialist in the treatment of Plagiocephaly who will fit him with a special helmet that will gently allow his head to return to a normal shape.
The cost of this treatment is £1950. We have been fortunate enough to be awarded a grant for part of the cost but still have a long way to go.
Any money raised by this page will not only help with Seth's treatment but will also be helping Tree of Hope charity with their fantastic work.
