We then had to apply for the surgery and after 3 months we got the news that Sophie has been accepted for this amazing life changing surgery in America and will hopefully undergo SDR surgery next year! With this great news comes alot of fear and pressure as we now have to raise €100,000 to cover the surgery and extensive physiotherapy afterwards so we explained it all to Sophie and she took it in her stride and said "let's do it". We have created Sophies Wish as it is Sophie's wish to be able to play and enjoy activities with her friends, to be pain free, to feel normal, and not have to use her chair for long distances and getting SDR surgery will make all of that possible for her. As a parent all I want is for my little girl to be happy and healthy so the aim is to get the funds to go to America for the biggest and best change of her life!
This surgery will change Sophies life, it will stop further deterioration & reduce spastisity. The surgery will improve Sophies movement and endurance, it will also allow her to be more active and hopefully be able to get involved in sports and activities like all her friends (which she wants more then anything) but most importantly it will save her from pain and discomfort!
We really appreciate all donations!
Every donation and any help we can get means the world to us as we have a long journey ahead of us!
PLEASE Share Sophies Wish!
Thank you for reading!
