Samuel's Journey

I am a very cheeky little boy who arrived a little early in July 2010, but not early enough to worry anyone.  A few days after I was born I contracted enterovirus sepsis.  This is a commonly found virus which I could have got from anyone and anywhere but because I was so little, its effects were devastating.  This meant I had to go to PICU at the Evelina Hospital.  Tests there showed that I had had seizures.  The MRI showed that there had been swelling and abnormal chemical changes in my brain.

Mummy and Daddy have since discovered that I have visual impairment and global development delay. This means I am not yet talking and have neurological spasticity which means I am not yet walking.  I also have epilepsy. This is all covered by the umbrella term cerebral palsy.

I am raising funds for Tree of Hope so that I can have some therapy at Movement and Wellbeing. So far, I have had 4 hours of therapy and the results have been amazing, but the therapy needs to continue.

I am quite an expensive little boy to keep as I require special seating and help with bathing and eating. Mummy and Daddy try to supply everything I need, but sometimes they need a little help with equipment and support not supplied by the nhs so some of my fundraising for Tree of Hope will pay for this.

If we exceed the target or if we don’t raise enough funds, or if they cannot be used for any other reason, monies raised will go to Tree of Hope to help other sick children.

Thank you for any help you can give me along my journey so I can be the little boy I am meant to be.
