Mae celebrates her 1st SDR Anniversary!

We have kept in contact with the Doncaster Free Press who have been following Mae’s progress. This has been a great way for us to let local supporters know our news. The reporter was very keen to reflect that we are continuing to raise funds for Mae’s rehabilitation, and was kind enough to share details of the ongoing costs and demands of suppporting Mae’s progress. Many thanks to them for highlighting our progress in the Free Press this week. You can see the article, as well as a fabulous video of Mae during therapy, on the Doncaster Free Press website.

We will continue to keep the Hope4Mae fund going, to support Mae’s rehabilitation programme. In celebration of her surgery anniversary, we will be launching a VERY special raffle, very close to our hearts. All proceeds will go to Mae’s rehab care. We will be announcing the details very soon!

Thanks so much for your continued support. It means so very much x

2nd October – World Cerebral Palsy Day AND we reach 50k raised!

A message from Mae’s Mum:

Today we reached a moment of great significance in our journey so far – Mae’s fund has officially hit £50,000!! Wow……Thank you so much from the very bottom of our hearts. Your kindness, generosity, commitment, dedication, support and want to make this happen for Mae is beyond words. We can’t thank you enough xxx

World CP day

Today is World Cerebral Palsy day – All I ask for is a moment of thought for people living with this condition and the everyday challenges and struggles that it brings….

There are 17 million people across the world living with cerebral palsy (CP). Another 350 million people are closely connected to a child or adult with CP. It is the most common physical disability in childhood.

CP is a permanent disability that affects movement. Its impact can range from a weakness in one hand, to almost a complete lack of voluntary movement.

It is a complex disability: 1 in 4 children with CP cannot talk, 1 in 3 cannot walk, 1 in 2 have an intellectual disability, 1 in 4 have epilepsy.*

CP is a lifelong disability and there is no known cure.

However for people living with CP life can be made easier and YOU have the ability to make that happen.

If you can see this post it will be because a special little girl living with Cerebral Palsy has touched your heart.

If you have given a moment to read this post then thank you and thank you again for supporting Mae and caring to ensure she is not alone in her challenges and that the everyday struggles she faces will be made easier.

Much love always
Mae’s Mum
