Can you support us?

Donate to Tree of Hope today so that we can continue to help children

Elliot is a lovely, funny six year old boy from Bournemouth who has spastic diplegic cerebral palsy and severe Haemophilia A. Great Ormond Street Hospital has assessed Elliot as a suitable candidate for Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), a life-changing operation which will give him much more freedom of movement. We need your help to raise a lot of money for Tree of Hope to pay for the operation and associated physiotherapy.

Elliot currently walks very short distances with walking sticks and manages without his wheelchair at home.  As Elliot is growing his legs are becoming less able to support his bodyweight. As a result Elliot is becoming less mobile, less independent and more reliant on his wheelchair.

The NHS supports families by offering the operation but it cannot fund it, nor the physiotherapy afterwards.

Elliot’s family and friends are embarking on the massive challenge to raise these funds for Tree of Hope. This is one of those cases where every pound we receive is crucial. Please get involved by donating or even by organising your own fundraising event. Whether it’s £1 or £100, every penny will make a huge difference to improving Elliot’s mobility and life opportunities.

If 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.
