Getting Louie to NAPA Rehab

Hi guys
I'm reaching out to you because little Louie Hayward needs our help. Louie contracted a virus at birth which has impaired his sight and ability to move normally. This has resulted in him being diagnosed with cerebral palsy, vision impairment, seizures and global development delay.

To help Louie reach his potential in life rehabilitative therapy is really important. Cerebral palsy affects the brain's ability to send signals to our limbs in order to move. Research shows that with rehabilitation the brain can form new pathways in order to achieve movement. A large portion of these changes happen in the first 5 years of life, hence the urgency to help Louie out.  

A new and intensive model of therapy is now available where kids can receive up to 4 hours a day for a three week period at a specialised rehab centre in Sydney. This promotes the development of new pathways in the brain to help form new movement habits and achieve goals which may normally take up to a year to achieve.  The cost of this intensive therapy is $175.00 per hour and to cover a 3 week program we need to raise $10,500.  With limited government funding, we need your help in raising this to get Louie down there.
