This is to help raise funds for 6 year old, Bella, to have Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital, currently this is not available on the NHS.
Bella was born with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy – caused by a brain injury, this affects the control of leg movement and co-ordination. Bella uses a wheelchair but can use a walking frame for very short distances when fully supervised.
Bella is the sweetest, kindest, funniest little girl, she is brave and strong – but she wants to walk, she smiles through evry hospital appointment, physio session, injection and serial casting because she believes it will worth it in the end.
SDR is a neurological procedure that reduced the stiff muscles – it’s not a cure for Cerebral Palsy and we cannot predict the outcome but leg movement, control, range and speed will all improve after the operation. The effects of the operation are permanent – and the usual decline of movement which is seen in adolescence is non-existent in those who have had the procedure.
Although the improvements will be instant, it could take 2 years for the outcome to be clear.
