Please can you help Sierra in June


Please can you help?

We've had really good results with Sierra since we started therapy and until recently thought she would be able to drive her own chair, communicate through a computer and live with assisstance independently.

Unfortunately her epilepsy has recently overcome us. She has had a recent increase of seizures that we don't seem to be able to control with medication other than valium. We try not to use valium unless we have to because it limits brain activity.

We are requesting help raising money for our July trip to London/ Prague to see Sierra's Neurosurgeon who is willing to have us stay with him (he is an epilepsy expert), Eye Doctor (seizures are affecting her left eye) and regular physios to assess whether the seizures are taking her backwards intellectually and to get a home physio program for the next six months.

If you could donate to our July fundrasier or do a fundraiser of your own creation in June please let us know. We welcome any help we can get. We need approx $14,000 or £7000 to get flights and therapy.

Please let me know if you can help.
