Harvey's Wish <3
Hi, my name is Harvey & I am nearly 10 years old.
I am a very happy, social & cheeky little boy who has a passion for Music especially Rock 'n' Roll. My idol is Elvis!
My Mummy always tells me how proud she is of me as I always try my hardest.
I suffer from Quadriplegic Spastic Cerebral Palsy due to brain damage (which affects 3 of my limbs, my left arm, hand & both my legs) The left side of my body is affected the most. I have very limited use of my left arm & have a deformity in my left wrist & hand.
I have a severe vision impairment, I'm long sighted & require glasses. I also have a diagnosis of Global Development Delay which means I am delayed in all areas of communication, learning & need full assistance & 1-1 care with feeding, washing, dressing, changing, using the toliet & transfers into my equipment.
I also have a history of Epilepsy caused by focal seizures which can progress to a tonic/clinic seizure. I can go very stiff, fall or have a convulsation down both sides of my body which can lead to calling an ambulance immediately & makes me feel very sleepy & unwell.
Due to alot of indepth research & recommendations, Mummy found a fantastic team of private physios which is helping prolong my progress.
However it costs alot of money for me to attend each week & unfortunately this treatment is NOT available to me on the NHS.
I am a very active little boy, who loves a challenge & I know I have a lot more to give, to achieve my dream of learning to walk & I know Kids Physio Works can help me get there!
I'm at my happiest when I'm on my feet, & I would give anything to be able to dance freely from my wheelchair.
I only receive physiotherapy from the NHS 3 times a year via a group session which sadly isn't enough to unlock my potential & to learn things I could do independently if I was given the chance.
Kids Physio Works can provide 1-1 2hrs sessions but at a cost of £147 an hour.
So I am asking for your help, to raises funds for me and children who suffer from similar conditions, through this amazing charity called 'Tree of hope'.
I promise to do my best and ensure that the money you help to raise, will help me to accomplish my dreams of walking, I know I have a long journey ahead of me but with your help I know I can do this.
It's doesn't matter how much or how little you have to offer, every penny counts!
If we manage to exceed the target, the extra money will go towards other children through Tree of hope.
Thank you for taking the time in reading my story & thank you to those how have helped us so far.
All my love Harvey & Mummy xxxx
