Hayden’s Appeal

Hayden was diagnosed with Scoliosis back in
September/October , which is a curvature of
the spine. He is 12 years old, a beautiful,
smart, funny boy who has Autism and attends Knockavoe School here in Strabane.  After
being sent for an X-ray in Derry we were told he had an angle of 42degrees which we later
found was measured wrong and in fact his
curve was measuring at 60 degrees at
the time. We found this out when we had to go private to see a consultant as the waiting lists here in Ireland are terrible. We were told his
case was urgent but with the waiting lists the way they are here he could be waiting years
for surgery even tho he was classed as urgent and he was fitted with a Boston brace. As u
can imagine the brace is causing alot of pain
and discomfort and with Hayden’s sensory
issues  is tough getting him to wear it. After 8
long months, Hayden growing at a fast rate
and seeing so many success story’s we
decided the best option for Hayden was to
make contact with Dr Alanay in Turkey.
Dr Alanay recommends Hayden needs surgery ASAP, and said he would be happy to help! We desperately need your help, to help Hayden
get to Turkey for his really important, life
changing operation before his health
deteriorates further. All donations big or
small will be greatly appreciated and mean the world to us. ❤
