Hello, my name is Claudia. I am 3 years old and I live in London.
After several tests I was diagnosed with Tetralegia Celebral Palsy. When I reached the age of two I started having epilepsy attacks which were followed by days spent at the hospital which caused delays in my development. My last epilepsy attack resulted in intubation even after doctors spent two hours trying to stop the seizure.
I still cannot sit without the assistance of my family or walk even though I would really like to. Rehabilitation with my mum is a part of my daily routine. However, this is not enough. The doctors say that I will need intensive rehabilitation and the use of specialist equipment so that I can walk like other children.
On advice too my parents would like to take me to a neuro-rehabilitation centre but they will not be able to do so without your help. Every donation from you will bring me closer to achieving my dream of a more independent life.
Should we exceed the target amount (or if we do not raise enough funds, or if they cannot be used for any other reason) the funds raised will go to the general funds of Tree of Hope to assist other sick children.
