My story

[p]This charity "Whizz-Kidz" is very close to our hearts. My daughter Emma was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy Spastic Quadriplegia at 9 months old. Emma was born 12 weeks premature weighing 1 lb 14 oz. She has grown up to be a very happy young lady who has been through many obstacles. Due to Emma's dislocating hips, has never had the ability to walk and has been wheelchair bound all her life. When Emma was 6 years old we approached "Whizz-Kidz" to find out if they were able to help Emma get her independence in moving herself around. After a few consultations it was agreed they would provide a powered wheelchair which she would be able to operate switches to move her. This has changed her life dramatically and has enabled her to gain confidence and pride in herself for having her own independence. The reason I have chosen "Whizz-Kids" as my charity to run for is to hopefully give back what Emma has been given to reach her goal, also to give other young children the ability to get their independence. Thank you for taking your time to read this and hope you feel able to give a donation. Many thanks Ollie[/p]
