My name is Jack Rooke, i was born on 2nd October 2008, i weighed just 2lb 12 ounces.
My mummy went into labor early at 28 weeks, i lived in Neonatal intensive care for the first 11 weeks of my life in Bath RUH.
After i came home my family began to notice my mobility skills were very delayed so when i was around 12 months of age i had to have an MRI scan of my brain.
My scan showed i had damage due to a bleed on the brain which resulted in me having Cerebral Palsy.
Due to my brain injury, causing me to have Cerebral Palsy i have stuggled with basic skill effecting my mobility, i have found it very hard to, sit, crawl and get myself around.
My type of cerebral palsy is called spastic diplegia, this means the muscles in my legs are very tight, i am now going to be 4 next week. I can not stand or walk unaided, i have to be carried or put in my swifty push chair which i do not like.
I have a frame called a kaye walker that i use to walk with, i can only use this indoors and get tired very quickly,so can not go very far, i love the independance i get with my frame but would love to one day be able to walk with out it, to be able to join in with my friends and run around playing with them. For my family to see my take my first steps i need some help.
one of my favourite things is football and to play one day with my friends at the moment is only a dream.
This is why i am asking for your help, there is a life changing operation i can have called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR). This operation will take away the tighness in my muscles in my legs and allow me to walk all by myself!
Jack is such a happy little boy and tries so hard and is very determined to do things for himself. we would love for jack to have this chance in life to have surgery and give him the best chance he can have of taking his first steps.
This operation costs a lot of money we are hoping to raise enough money so jack can have the operation and can have intensive physiotherapy he will need after.
Any donation no matter how small will help us to achive Jacks Will To Walk x
