Ciara has Cerebral Palsy-Spastic Diplegia, was born prematurely at 32w+5d and is now nearly 4.
I am crowdfunding for Ciara to have surgery at The Centre for Cerebral Palsy, Missouri in the USA. It is recommended to have early surgery at the ages 2 to 4 years old, before children have developed deformities of the legs. Ciara will be 4 at time of surgery. Ciara will likely need to also have PERCS surgery as her calf muscles may need lengthening after SDR.

The surgery will permanently reduce spasticity, by cutting nerve rootlets in Ciara’s spinal cord.

SDR will eliminate pain associated with movements, as well as minimise future deterioration of her body ordinarily caused by spasticity, which would otherwise ultimately cause Ciara to lose her ability to walk and therefore be confined to using a wheelchair, by the time she is 40….
SDR will also greatly minimise the amount of future orthopaedic surgeries Ciara will need throughout her life, as contractures will be minimised.

After surgery, Ciara will feel AWESOME in her new legs, as she will be able to use her whole body freely, Yay!!!
