Because I was born so early, I am deaf in both ears and can't talk yet. I have a severe development delay and cerebral palsy which affects all of my limbs. I am unable to sit or stand independently, but I work extremely hard at my physio every day to build up my strength. We don't know whether I will ever be able to walk, but I will certainly try my hardest.
The one thing I want to do more than anything in the world, is to play with my friends when we go out. But because of my disabilities I have to stay in my pram, which is really upsetting for me.
So mummy asked my occupational therapist if I could be assessed for a Tiny Trax. We weren't sure if I would be able to manage it as I am the smallest and youngest child she has ever had for assessment!
But I absolutely smashed it and everyone was really blown away with my level of understanding. The Tiny Trax is a bit like a cool electric wheel chair. It looks just like a car, which I control using a stick. It even has headlights! The car will last until I am 10 years old so I would also be able to use it at school, which is so exciting. It will help with my co-ordination, arm movements and understanding. And because my brain is still growing, the sooner I can afford it, the bigger impact it will have.
I have added a video and some pictures of me trying out the Tiny Trax for the very first time, at my local hospital below.
You can see from my face how much I loved using it! Especially driving away from mummy!! So now we have full support of our NHS team in sourcing the Tiny Trax, I need your help to raise £6,777, to be able to buy one.
Whatever you can give will get me a step closer to making my dream of playing with my friends a reality. Thank you for reading my story – I hope you can help :)
Lots of love, Millie xx
