Two year old Cavan has a specific kind of cerebral palsy, which means he cannot walk. Cavan’s family are presently fundraising through the campaign Cavan’s First Steps, to take Cavan to St Louis’ Children’s Hospital, where Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy surgery will, in the words of the American surgeon, ‘allow him to walk unaided in all environments.’
Cavan’s family need to raise as much money as possible, so that they will get closer to their target of £80,000, a sum that will not only cover the pioneering surgery, but the intensive post-operative physiotherapy and equipment needed.
Registration begins at 11am and refreshments will be served on completion of the walk around the grounds of Mount Stewart.
All participants will receive a sponsorship form to help us raise as much as possible to help this incredible young boy. Registration fee of £25 also includes donation to Cavans First Steps.
