Five-year-old Tristan Dawe flew to St Louis, Missouri, in November for surgery after his NHS operation was cancelled due to cuts. His parents collected £60,000 to pay for his treatment through a fundraising appeal. Tristan, from Coventry, is now walking with the use of a frame.
His mother Kate, 29, said:
“The day after his operation, he woke up and said, ‘Look, Mummy, I can wiggle my toes’, and I broke down in tears.
