Funded: SDR Operation
Jakob has severe Cerebral Palsy and was unable to walk. He could do very little for himself and had to
rely on his parents to move him. Jakob needed a life changing SDR Operation. This is a surgical
procedure performed on the lower spinal cord. The nerves that lead to too much muscle tone and spasticity are then cut.
Unfortunately, this operation and on-going post-op Physiotherapy wasn't funded by the NHS, so
SDR was carried out in America costing a huge £65,000.
This was raised by the fantastic fundraising of his family, the local community and The DCF.
Jakob is progressing really well and attends main stream school with his twin Elliot.
