Harrison's SDR Surgery
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am fundraising to pay for Harrison's Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy Surgery. He will also require 2 years intensive physiotherapy following the surgery.
Harrison is 3 years old and has cerebral palsy due to a bleed on his brain and being starved of oxygen at birth. The condition affects his muscles and movements. Harrison is unable to walk or sit up unaided, he suffers with a lot of pain due to the tightness of his muscles.
Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy has been offered to him by the Alder Hey Children's Hospital but unfortunately is not funded by the NHS. The cost of the operation is £16,000 and we are unable to book the appointment until we have paid the full amount. He will then need post-operative therapy, which is a vital part of his recovery.
SDR surgery is a permanent, life changing operation that takes away almost all of the spasticity. It would prevent bone deformities and contractures, improve function, increase range of motion and most of all take away the constant pain and offer him greater opportunities.
He is such a bright, happy little boy with an amazing personality. He is starting to realise the issues he has but just gets on with it. He has had a lot to cope with since his birth and we are all so proud of him so far. Myself, family, friends and everyone involved with his care can not thank you enough for your generosity and helping us to change a gorgeous little boys life forever.
I need as much help as possible to raise this money and welcome ideas and help.
