Amelia's SDR Wish is a fund within Just4Children with the simple aim to ensure Amelia, a 3 1/2 year old girl gets one operation SDR (Selective Dorsal Ryzotomy)
Amelia has Spastic Diaplegia Cerebral Palsy, this causes her muscles to tense up and means that she walks on tip toes, and falls over many times a day.
SDR would mean that the Spasticity (stiffness) would be permenatly removed, the threat of a wheelchair will be a distant memory, and its just one operation. Allthough following the operation Amelia will need to have 2-3 years of intensive physiotherapy to effectively learn to walk again.
Allthought the NHS will carry out the operation, unfortunately this is only through their 'top up' scheme which means that the operation and vital physiotherapy comes with a price tag of £85,000
