We are trying to raise 40,000 so that our baby boy can have his life changing sdr (selective dorsal rhizotomyey) syrgery.
Harvey-George has spastic diplegic cerebral palsy and this causes very tight and very painful muscle tightness and spasms. Over enough time, this constant tensing of the muscles can affect the joints and reduce the overall range of motion. He walks on his tip toes and has to use over 10x more energy than a normal walk and it also means he can only walk short distances before getting tired. It causes him to fall frequently meaning he ends up with secondary injuries because of his condition.
The surgery aims to sever the nerves in the spine that are responsible for his problems and make the legs go back to day one. Meaning a lot of aftercare will be needed but hopefully in time make walking better and more manageable for Harvey-George and make it so he’s “like everyone else”.
The surgery however is not on the nhs and has a time scale meaning he needs this critical surgery before he is 9 and as he recently turned 8 this means we have less than a year to accomplish our goal.
Thank you all for your support. This operation will give Harvey-George the chance at an independent life and make his dream of being just like anyone else a reality. With your help we can make Harvey-George’s dreams come true. What ever you can contribute will be very greatfully recurved thank you.
