Stumbling Block - Megan's Wish to Walk
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Megan was a 'normal' 11 year old girl, friendly, happy - she had just started secondary school where she had really come out of herself.
Out of the blue in October 2011 she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Although the tumour was thankfully benign, the life saving surgery to remove it has resulted in life changing problems.
Megan spent over a year in hospital and rehab and has been left with a number of difficulties.
Megan is now in a wheelchair. She sufferers from ataxia (shakes), double vision and she is frustrated as she is fully aware of her life before the tumour.
Megan's only desire in life now is to walk again. She is improving every day but needs specialist physiotherapy to achieve her full potential and walk again unaided.
Megan has had over a year of physio & hydrotherapy sessions with a specialist neuro-physiotherapist. She is making massive improvements and with support from an adult she is learning to walk with a frame. She is getting closer and closer to achieve her dream of walking independently :-)
When Megan walks again, she will be the happiest child in the world.
Every penny you donate will go towards her treatment, so please help us to make Megan's wish come true.
