Help izzy walk

Izzy is a bright, happy, cheeky 5-year-old girl, who loves to sing and dance. She's a pupil at St. Columb Major Academy. Izzy is one of identical twins and she has Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia. This means she suffers from pain and also has difficulty with leg movements, coordination and balance. Because of her condition, Izzy cannot walk or even stand unaided. Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) is a life changing complex spinal operation, the only surgical procedure that permanently reduces or eliminates stiffness and spasticity in the legs. Izzy's parents are fundraising through Just4Children, a registered charity (no.1164473). We support her and we hope you will too.
