We are trying to raise money to help our 2 year old son Oscar have extra physio and speech therapy at the Bobath centre in London (www.bobath.org.uk).
Oscar has cerebral palsy caused by a lack of oxygen shortly after birth. This has affected his brain leaving him with the athetoid type of CP. This means he has trouble controlling his muscles and movements. At the moment he is unable to sit unsupported or walk or talk.
Oscar has visited Bobath and the therapists there were very pleased with him and he exceeded all the goals they set for him. This visit was funded by the NHS but due to cuts in government spending it's unlikely they will do so again.
So please help us to raise money to provide Oscar with this therapy to allow him to achieve his full potential and live a full and happy life.
We will be posting details of upcoming fundraising events so keep checking back.
We also hope to have a facebook page set up soon too.
