Maisie's Challenge

£7,169 of £20,000 goal

Raised by 158 people in 28 months
My daughter Maisie 9 has been told she is a good candidate for Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy operation. This is a 3 hour op to relieve the spasticity in her legs from cerebral palsy, with a long hard recovery period, but at a cost of just under £20,000 all in with physio therapy needs post op too. Maisie is a beautiful girl inside and out and really deserves this chance. She is a twin and has to put up with 3 brothers we are a close family who will pull together to fund raise like mad, but don't want to hit the same people all the time.The twins were born prematurely at 29 wks, hence maisie having cerebral palsy, and has had a lot to contend with in her short life.All she wants to do is be like her twin brother Alfie, climb, jump and run and be able to do things with her piers without mum being in tow.Thank you for reading this ❤️

Hello everyone I'm so sorry I haven't updated on here for a while, we have been so busy fund raising on top of normal day to day living turn around and this year has flown?!?
From the bottom of my heart a huge Thank you to you all for your kind donations ❤️ we have reached our original goal of 20k which enables maisie to have the operation and a months stay afterwards how ever we unfortunately can't put an exact figure on maisies reabilitation? She will need from 18 months upwards of physiotherapy and walking aids. We are currently at £38,000 but on speaking to other parents of children who have had SDR closer to £50,000 is more accurate.
I am recording all help, donations and names of people who are helping maisie along the way in a scrap book so she can look back on this in the future but from a very grateful mum Thank you xxxxxxxx
