Donate to Tree of Hope today so that we can continue to help children

My name is Harrison Galligan aged 8 months from Cheltenham.

At the beginning of my life I was so comfortable inside mummy I didn’t want to come out, but finally I decided to meet my mummy and daddy 6 days later.

Unfortunately I suffered a significant brain injury during my difficult delivery into the world, as I got a bit tangled with my cord, and didn’t get enough oxygen to my brain. They sent me straight to Southmead Hospital to be cooled down to help lessen the damage to my brain. During this time the doctors didn’t think I was going to make it but I kept fighting and lots of people kept praying, and we proved those doctors wrong!

When they first woke me up I had great difficulty with feeding and breathing, but after 3 weeks of hard work I got the hang of it and was able to go home which was a very happy day!

I’m 8 months old now and i’m still doing quite well with just a few blips along the way. However, because of my start in life I have severe Cerebral Palsy Spastic Quadriplegia and Epilepsy, and I’m also very delayed in my development. Every day I have to have physio (not one of my favourite things!) and various other treatments, I also need special equipment to help me.

At the moment I need a special car seat so I can get out and about, especially for my many appointments. Any money you can give will help my mummy and daddy buy the things needed to help me do the exciting things kids like me want to do, and the more everyday things many take for granted.

My mummy and daddy are doing a 10K run on Sunday 25th November at Temple Guiting to raise money for the car seat and other equipment.

All donations would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
