 Please help raise £80,000 to fund a life changing operation to help 5 year old Izzy Pearce walk.

 

Izzy Pearce is 5 years old from St Columb Major in Cornwall. Izzy is one of identical twins who has Cerebal Spastic Diplegia. This means she has increased muscle tone and her legs are constantly stiff (spasticity). She suffers from pain and cannot stand unaided.

Izzy needs a spinal operation that would reduce or eliminate the stiffness and spasticity. Without the spasticity Izzy's range of movement would improve and with physiotherapy will hopefully give her the chance to walk.

This operation is not available in the NHS. Without it Izzy will be reliant on a wheelchair for the rest of her life and never get the chance to fulfill her dream which is to dance with her twin sister who is able to walk.

The money will pay for the surgery and physiotherapy afterwards. Every gift large or small will contribute to getting Izzy walking.
