It’s been another busy month in Mae’s rehab, and she has spent her first week at a specialist post-op centre, called Footsteps, in Oxfordshire. The Footsteps programme is a three week intensive course, costing almost £2,500, and would never have been possible without the generous help and donations from our supporters, so thank you to everyone!
We are unable to take photgraphs of Mae’s visit, but you can see some of the specialist equiment on the Footsteps website. The equipment is pioneering, and some is exclusive to this centre in the UK, and all assists in developing the muscle tone and strength of children with disability. We continue to raise funds to help Mae make the most of available aftercare, and you can see our May events now on the website.
As you can appreciate, it has been important for us to establish some family time once more, following the lengthy fund-raising efforts of 2013, and the trip to USA for Mae’s surgery early this year. We have fewer events running at present, but we continue to receive support from local companies and sponsors, and some individual donations. We would like to thank all who make it possible for us to continue on Mae’s journey to independence. It has been a joy to see Mae striving to stand tall and this photo of her last week, at our visit to Stone Henge, makes it all worthwhile! Thank you xx
