My story

[lt]p style="margin-right: 0cm; margin-left: 0cm; font-size: 12pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; orphans: 2; text-align: -webkit-auto; widows: 2;"[gt][span=font-family: Arial; font-size: x-small;][lt]span style="font-size: 10pt;"[gt]I need your support to help some children who have had the worst starts in life.[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin-right: 0cm; margin-left: 0cm; font-size: 12pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; orphans: 2; text-align: -webkit-auto; widows: 2;"[gt][span=font-family: Arial; font-size: x-small;][lt]span style="font-size: 10pt;"[gt]One in 400 children in the UK are diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The condition is caused by damage to a child’s developing brain usually before, during or soon after birth. This disturbs messages between the brain and the muscles so that children with CP find it difficult to control their movement, posture and co-ordination. Most of the time it can’t be foreseen and there is no cure.[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin-right: 0cm; margin-left: 0cm; font-size: 12pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; orphans: 2; text-align: -webkit-auto; widows: 2;"[gt][span=font-family: Arial; font-size: x-small;][lt]span style="font-size: 10pt;"[gt]That’s the bad news. The good news is that children can grow up to be independent, healthy and happy given the right support. This is where the Bobath Centre comes in. The Bobath Centre has some very skilled physio, occupational and speech & language therapists who specialise in helping children to do ordinary things – like playing, going to school or making friends. I’ve seen first-hand the difference they make to the lives of children and their families.[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin-right: 0cm; margin-left: 0cm; font-size: 12pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; orphans: 2; text-align: -webkit-auto; widows: 2;"[gt][span=font-family: Arial; font-size: x-small;][lt]span style="font-size: 10pt;"[gt]The problem is it’s getting harder for families to get funding for therapy and children aren’t getting the specialist support they need. So I’m raising money for the charity’s treatment fund to make sure that children get seen as early as possible when it will have the greatest impact.[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin-right: 0cm; margin-left: 0cm; font-size: 12pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; orphans: 2; text-align: -webkit-auto; widows: 2;"[gt][span=font-family: Arial; font-size: x-small;][lt]span style="font-size: 10pt;"[gt]Running the London Marathon will be a challenge and I am already training to make sure I get round in one piece. However, it will all be over in a few hours, but for children with cerebral palsy the challenges last a lifetime. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Please sponsor me and if you have nothing better to do on the 13[sup]th[/sup] April why not come down to London Town and cheer me on![/span][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]div[gt][span=font-family: Arial; font-size: x-small;][lt]span style="font-size: 10pt;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/div[gt]
