Raising Lolly for Evan and Oli
Oliver and Evan are 8 year old twin boys with two different types of Cerebral Palsy. Oliver has dystonic quadriplegic cp and Evan has spastic diplegic cp, they also have an older brother called Joseph who is 10 and dotes on his younger brothers.
We have been raising money for Evan to have an operation called SDR which enables children to move more freely and the goal for most children is for them to walk. Evan has since had his operation and doing really well but needs help with extra physiotherapy which the nhs cannot provide, together with equipment to help him on his journey towards walking independently. He will require new walking aids, benches, a tricycle and various other pieces of equipment to make physio fun, I.e. Trampolines etc..
Oliver is severely affected and is sight impaired, cannot sit unaided, walk, talk, has epilepsy and scoliosis. He will need equipment for the rest of his life to be able sit, I.e. Comfy chairs, wheelchairs and we are currently looking at funding Oliver a trike which clamps onto our own bikes so that we can all share a leisurely Sunday afternoon along the beach front. A few weeks ago Olive spent 2 weeks in intensive care due to a severe case of chickenpox and his future looked uncertain. Fortunately he is home now and convalescing and enjoying lots of cuddles before he returns to school full time.
Although they are identical twins their needs are very different and in Oliver's case complex. The money we are raising will help our family out no end and we cannot thank you enough.
Love Nikki and Jason ( mammy and daddy)
