Hope For Emily Appeal
May 10, 2014
Emily was born at 29 weeks, and sustained brain damage at birth. This among other problems means that at two years old she is unable to sit, craw or walk. She has been diagnosed with spastic quadraplegic cerebral palsy and is fed via a tube down her nose and into her tummy. She also has growth problems as so is the size of a 1 year old equipment therefore is often a problem as it has to be customised.
There is an operation in America called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which would give Emily the chance to walk and take away the painful spasms she has now, which stop her from sleeping. The cost however is £65,000.The initial assessment its self is in the region of £10,000. Emily’s family have set a 3 year target to try and start raising funds for this operation, intensive physio she will need and equipment that the NHS doesn't cover to make Emily's life more comfortable and her future brighter. Emily’s family are using The charity Tree of Hope to collect our funds as they are the experts on this type of fundraising.
Emily’s family are arranging various events to raise this money, including a charity ball which we will be contribute our sweet cart and wishing well to. To find out more or to donte please visit the Hope For Emily Just Giving page by clicking here
