walk in Highbridge on Sunday will help brave Jessica
fundraising walk is to be held in Highbridge on
Sunday (October 18th) to raise funds for a youngster who has Cerebral
Palsy and wants to walk.
Avery, 6, arrived 11 weeks early and spent the first weeks of
her life in special care and her parents were told that she was
expected to be severely disabled and blind for the rest of her
in fact she's beaten the odds and is not blind but does suffer
from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy which means her brain
sends out incorrect messages to her nerves that control her muscles,
making it difficult to move and walk.
Jessica is receiving continued specialist physiotherapy and had
a successful operation in America earlier this year.
neurosurgeon believes that with the right physiotherapy and support,
her dream of walking could one day come true.
sponsored 'Welly Walk' will be held at Apex Park from 2-3pm with
all welcome to take part. The funds will go towards helping brave
Jessica with her physiotherapy and support. More details are available
