Louie

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page,

Louie was born at 36 weeks, a beautiful happy and healthy baby. At 7 months old Louie was unable to sit up and found it hard to move around. Louie was diagnosed with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy at 1 years old after an MRI scan revealed damage to his brain. Louie learnt to sit up unaided at 2 years old and has worked really hard to find ways to be independent and move around, at 3 he managed to crawl and then there was no stopping him. He has just stated to be able to walk and as he grows the muscles in his legs get tighter making his physiotherapy more difficult to maintain. 

At 8 years old  he is extremely bright and finds being unable to walk well frustrating at times. He is a cute, funny little boy who loves playing and with the help of his older brother Max loves getting into mischief!.....sometimes lots of mischief. 

We make sure Louie leads a normal happy life so when he is older he can remember all of the magical memories of being a child and not the obstacle of having a disability. 

The Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy operation will release the nerves in the spine which are creating the tightness and allow Louie to achieve positive results with his physiotherapy and hopefully help him to walk. 

We will be doing lots of fundraising events to raise money with the help of our brilliant friends and family.

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.
