Believe in Hope 2
Hello, my name is Hope and I have Cerebral Palsy affecting both of my arms and legs. Me and my identical twin sister Ava were born very early at just 27 weeks and I only weighed 750g. At 18 months I was diagnosed with Quadriplegic spastic dystonic Cerebral Palsy. I am now 7 years old and even though I am a happy, cheeky and beautiful little girl I cannot sit, stand or walk unaided. I really want to be able to do as much as my body will let me.
I currently attend private physio twice a week to enable me to become much stronger in my body, core, balance, confidence and even speech. I also attend Alex’s Place in Stafford three times a year for an alternative physiotherapy block. However, as you can imagine both of these therapies are costly. We have recently spent a lot of my previous fund to help pay towards adaptations around my home like a lift, wet room and ramps everywhere so that I can be more mobile, safe and happy at home with my twin sister, big brother and parents. I may also qualify for potential operations in the future which may not be funded by the NHS as well as essential equipment as I outgrow my current ones.
I am extremely lucky to have a lot of support from people who want to fundraise for me and as a family we really appreciate all of the help and support we receive. I will make sure I work hard to ensure your money is well spent. Thank you from me, Ava, Ben, Mummy and Daddy. x x x x
