Sometimes makes me cry Hello my name is Thomas, I am three years old and have cerebral palsy (spastic diplegia). This means that my muscles and tendons are always tight and very painful. I have to do daily excercises and stretches which is also very painful and sometimes makes me cry. http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/sometimes-makes-me-cry/
Louis’s little legs Hello, my name is Louis from Portsmouth and I am 3 years old. I was a slow mover as a baby and didn’t walk until after my second birthday. When I was two and a half, doctors diagnosed me with Spastic Diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy. http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/louiss-little-legs/
Dance like a princess Our beautiful 4 year old daughter has mild diplegic cerebral palsy, a type of brain damage that effects her mobility. Luckily we have been accepted for an operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy that will help her to walk flatter on her heel. http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/dance-like-a-princess/
He is fantastic! http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/thomas-is-fantastic/ Thomas is 18 months old from Albrighton. He was born 10 weeks early in September 2011. When he was 20 days old we were told the devastating news our little boy had suffered bilateral periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), a type of brain damage from a hypoxic event during labour or after birth, which would most likely result in cerebral palsy.
Journey of Hope Riccardo is a happy 9 year old boy from Wrexham whose only wish is to walk and play football with his friends. He was diagnosed with Diplegic Cerebral Palsy at the age of 15 months which means he is unable to walk unaided. Normal day to day tasks require assistance. http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/journey-of-hope/
http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/i-enjoy-life/ My name is Jamie and I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when I was 6 months old and I am now 6! My mum had a normal pregnancy and labour so we don't know why I was born this way but my family love me all the same.
Anything is possible! Aidan, aka Aid, is a six-year-old boy who has cerebral palsy (spastic diplegia). We’re raising money for Tree of Hope for an operation that’ll help him walk better. http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/anything-is-possible/
Our promise to Raphael My name is Raphael from Stonehouse in Gloucestershire and I am five years old. I was born 15 weeks too soon so I wasn't ready and this caused me to bleed in my brain and nearly die. The bleed left me with severe cerebral palsy and I cannot speak, roll, crawl stand, walk or use my hands. http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/our-promise-to-raphael/
