When I was only 28 weeks pregnant our little Sunny decided to make a surprise entrance to the world at home! After being transferred to hospital our little fighter managed to breath completely by himself for 3 weeks without any help what so ever at a tiny 2lb. Sunny had good and bad days many more good then bad. At 7 weeks old our little miracle got discharged and got to come home. 17 weeks on and Sunny is doing better then expected but due to such a long period of time on his back in neonatal sunny has developed plagiocephaly and muscle weakness in his neck because of this all the muscles in his head are changing shape and have caused Sunnys ears to move out of line, a bump to appear on his forehead and a flat spot on the rear side. Sunny is undergoing physio therapy but the damage is already done the only way to improve this is to get sunny a plagiocephaly helmet unfortunately the cost of a helmet is £2,050 which we just can't afford. A Plagiocephaly helmet has to be custom made to fit and adjusted by specialist every 2 weeks for at least 6 months this will help his head form in a more natural shape slowly over time and will reduce any deformities to Sunnys head/face Today We set this fundraiser up to ask you all to please donate and help our little boy get his treatment! Thankyou!
