We are the proud parents of twin boys Solomon and Sebastian. Seb was diagnosed with cerebral palsy spastic diplegia at 15 months old. He has difficulties with muscle control, balance and coordination. His legs have a tendency to be stiff and go rigid in extension, particularly when he is tired or working hard. This makes simple things, such as crawling, cruising and even sitting, very difficult for him. He is not yet able to walk, but we hope that one day he will.
Our aim is to raise £70,000 for Tree of Hope to Seb to have life-changing SDR surgery which will remove or reduce the spasticity in his legs so that he can move more freely.
As part of our fundraising campaign, we will be running a marathon together three-legged. We are showing our commitment to our son's arduous journey ahead by committing to our own rigorous training schedule. Our wish is that one day soon he can walk holding hands with his twin brother, kick a football in the park, maybe even ride a bike or a pony. We just want him to have the chance to do the things we all take for granted.
