Finley is 2 years old from Llanarthne in Camarthenshire. He has Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. Just4Children would like to raise funds for extra physiotherapy or SDR surgery if Finley is the right candidate for the operation.

Finley is one of a twin born at 29 weeks. They were both in hospital for 9 long weeks and he had it tough from the get go. Finley was born not breathing, pale and floppy but they got him breathing again after 5 minutes.

While in hospital he had jaundice, suspended sepsis and MRSA colonization. We were told around 4 weeks old that he had Bilateral Periventricular Leukomalacia (brain damage). Then around 8 months old he was diagnosed with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy.

He is now two years old and doing wonderful things and we can really see Finley doing amazing things with lots of input from physio and other therapies.

Finley is yet to sit up unaided but loves to play with his twin brother but gets very frustrated when he can’t do the things that Alfie is doing. We would like to raise funds for extra input from a private physio, specialist equipment and maybe in the future think about the SDR surgery if possible. Finley would be very grateful.

Thank you so much for reading
