Theo is a 6 year old boy who lives in Dover with his mum, dad, older brother and sister. Theo burst into the world 2 months early and spent a short time in hospital. Just before Theo was 2 he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
Theo has been accepted to have life changing selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery (SDR) at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London.
The surgery will help Theo to walk independently and live his life pain free. However the surgery is reliant on the correct intensive physiotherapy and aftercare post-op. With this support Theo will be able to walk without any walking aids and will, for the first time ever, be truly free.
The post-op support and intensive physiotherapy isn’t not covered by the NHS and the family must raise £30,000. Theo’s mum, Kate Foss – made contact with The Walker Construction Trust to help support their family raise funds.
Kate says “Theo is the most determined boy I know, and for him to be free and able to walk along with his friends and sit on the carpet with his legs crossed at school really will change his whole world”.
