Thank you for visiting Finley's website!
Finley was born 12 weeks early and due to this he suffered brain damage in the form of spastic diplegia a type of Cerebral Palsy that effects his legs and balance. Finley is a six year old boy who is a bright and cheerful soul who copes so well with lifes obstacles and there are a lot!
His condition means he can't walk unaided. He uses a K walker and splints I give him daily physio , Finley mainly crawls to get around the house and needs help with dressing and going to the toilet. He also needs help getting up and down the stairs and most daliy tasks which can frustrate and upset him.
Finley has to use a wheel chair to go any distance !
We have looked into an operation called SDR ( selective dorsal rhizotomy), this helps reduce the increased muscle tone and spastisity. The benifits of this operation are huge and would give Finley his quality of life and a chance to walk unaided amazing !!! If this wasn't done Finley would be wheel chair bound for life. The operation which would be done by Mr Kristain AquIlina at the Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, costs £24,000 which is why we are now fundraising.
Finley's biggest wish is to walk like his big brother and to dance ! He attends St Richards Catholic school where he gets so much support from his teachers and all the staff , but he is starting to find things harder as he gets older.
We can't let this opportunity slip by as Finley so deserves a chance to be independant and to keep up with his friends.
If you could find it in your hearts to help our cause it would be a hunderd times better then winning the lottery, it would be priceless ! We only need 2,400 people to give £10.00 each, this is our mission and if you can get on board with us and start a chain reaction that would be fantastic !
Thank you for taking the time to read Fin's story, he is one in a million x !
