We are trying to raise £65,000 to get my 5 year old son who has cerebral palsy to America for a life changing operation and to provide the intensive aftercare he shall require after surgery.
Kyreigh currently lives in constant pain due to spasms and muscle tightness as well as facing life in a wheelchair however with your help it doesn't have to be that way!!
An operation called SDR in short cuts the nerves that hold his body in spasticity and therefore will instantly end the pain he suffers as well as enabling to him to walk, run and jump independently.
A large proportion of this money is to provide the aftercare that he will need that sadly won't be funded for us by the NHs. For two years Kyreigh will require private Physio, intensive Physio sessions, Physio equipment, hydrotherapy and hippotherapy. Without such aftercare the operation would not be successful. Once the operation removes the spasticity he will need to learn how to move again, he will need to build muscle and stretch his tendons and muscles that have been tight for 6 years.
Kyreigh was not made for life in a wheelchair and no child deserves to spend the rest of there life in pain so I ask if you can donate no matter how big or small please please do and you can know that you played part in changing his life and making his dreams come true.
Kyreigh's story as told by him,,,
I'm Kyreigh and I'm 5. I've had Cerebral Palsy since I was born. This means my muscles don't work properly, especially in my arms and legs. My legs are very wobbly and I have to wear splints to be able to stand and walk, even then I'm always falling over and hurting myself. I would love to be able to run, jump and skip like my friends. Having Cerebral Palsy is horrible it stops me doing so many things that I want to do and sometimes I can't join in doing the things my friends and sister do.
At school I have to have physio everyday, which I hate and then I have to do it at home with mummy as well! I have to do it right in the middle of play time at school when everyone else is outside playing. I have to wear a blue helmet when I play at school to protect my head when I fall over. I have to have a helper with me at school all of the time - even when I have to go to the toilet for a wee! That's not very good is it?!
My legs really hurt and sometimes I wake up at night and cry because it's not nice. I can't get comfy in bed.Now my legs are getting worse and I have to wear splints in bed which sometimes hurt cause they stretch me and I have to sleep in a sleep system too which I hate cause I cant move.
An operation called SDR in America would make my legs work properly and then I would be able to: walk, without tripping; wear wellies (they don't fit over my splints); play football; dress myself; stand up in the shower and ,best of all, run after my sister - and catch her :)
I'm a funny, kind chatterbox. Sometimes I'm a little bit naughty and with YOUR help I can be a little bit speedy too :)
Should we exceed the target amount (or if we do not raise enough funds, or if they cannot be used for any other reason) the funds raised will go to the general funds of Tree of Hope to assist other sick children.
