Hope For Alina

My granddaughter was born 4 weeks premature, as a result she has cerebral palsy, her life has been a struggle, she has been in therapy from the age of three, she's had surgeries to lengthen her thigh and calf muscles and to stop spasticity in her legs, she's come a long way, but she still cannot walk! Now there is hope in a surgery being performed at Saint Louis Childrens Hospital, SDR (SELECTIVE DORSAL RHIZOTOMY) permanently stops spasticity, taking away the stiffness in her muscles that prevent her from walking, it has done miracles for other children with cerebral palsy. But it is extremely expensive, I would like to help my son with the cost, please help me see my granddaughter walk!
