Nathalene Szekelys Therapy Fund
Nathalene had a stroke when I was pregnant, this was undetected until after she was born around three months old. I noticed along with family members that Nathalene didn’t have any range and very little movement to the left side of her body. She had lots of tests done and at 6 months was diagnosed to have cerebral palsy from a stroke affecting the right side of her brain which controls the left side of her body.
We have raised money for Nathalene to have cimt. Thank you so much for all your donations as this means we should be able to make the payment to the CIMT centre soon. This is a constraint therapy not available on the nhs. Costing us £9585.
Since the treatment Nathalene has excelled in the use of her left hand aswell as other skills she needs for a normal life. We are now fundraising for Nathalene to return to Manchester in June 2021. This will cost £7085 due to discounts we’ve received for returning to the clinic. We will still need accommodation costs, clothing and equipment too. Alongside the CIMT Nathalene we are taking Nathalene to a private physio as Nathalene is very close to walking now. This is at a cost of £144 and covers, strength building, sports massage and conditioning. Nathalenes brain doesn’t send messages to her left leg like ours does so this process helps her leg reconnect with her brain aswell as strengthening her leg to enable her to have the strength to take her first steps.
Due to the condition Nathalene has Cerebral Palsy, she will always need specialist equipment to help her have a normal life and the same opportunities as children her age with no medical condition. Any donation is gratefully received, Nathalene wouldn’t have these opportunists without you.
7.5% of all donations to Tree of Hope in relation to this appeal will be allocated to the general charitable purposes of Tree of Hope to cover our core operating costs.
If we raise insufficient funds, or surplus funds, then the funds will be used, if appropriate, to fund support for our child’s needs in accordance with Tree of Hope’s charitable objects. If in those circumstances we are unable to use all or part of the funds for the benefit of our child in accordance with Tree of Hope’s charitable objectives, then any funds that cannot be used will be transferred to be used for the general charitable purposes of Tree of Hope.
