Molly's Mission 2 Walk
Thank you for visiting Molly’s page.
Molly is 3 years old and has Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy. One of the symptoms is that it causes painful, tightness in her legs, so she is unable to walk independently.
In Oct 2012 Molly flew to St Louis Childrens Hospital, Missouri to have Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), a complicated operation which involved cutting some of the nerves in her spine that were responsible for overstimulating the spastic muscles (tight muscles) in the backs of her legs, thus permenatly eliminating their spasticity, giving Molly the chance to walk unaided for the first time.
Molly now needs a lot of aftercare to build the strength up in her leg muscles and to teach her to walk, now that she can straighten her legs and put her feet flat on the floor.
You can help make Mollys dream of walking become reality by donating towards Mollys aftercare, including at least 2 years of specialist physiotherapy.
After a great deal of hard work and therapy, Molly will hopefully walk unaided and live pain-free. This will give her the life that she deserves and I hope that you will help us in making her dream come true.
To do this we need donations for as much or as little as you can give, to raise the much needed funds for this bright, happy, fun-loving little girl. Anybody interested in supporting the Molly’s Mission To Walk Appeal is asked to contact Mollys father Richard Grove or The Tree of Hope Charity.
