About Grace

Our daughter - Grace Windram - is 5 years old and has Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy. This condition (caused by damage to the brain in late pregnancy / birth) means her movements are severly affected, in particular her lower body.

As a result, Grace cannot stand or walk, and other movements are a real struggle. In addition, the spasticity (tightness) in her legs cause discomfort, which will worsen as she grows.



Treatments

Now there is real hope for Grace to lead a much more independent life. Grace has been accepted for an operation in the US called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR). This procedure (undertaken by Dr Park at St. Louis Children's Hospital in Missouri) involves severing certain nerves in the spine which are sending the 'bad' signals to her legs, and therefore permanently reduce / remove the spasticity. In over 2,000 cases, it has had a 100% success rate. Dr Park believes that after the operation, Grace will be able to learn to walk in a walker, possibly with crutches and maybe even unaided for short distances.

Grace desparately wants to walk like her friends and this operation may just make her dream a reality. It also brings a host of other health benefits that will help her later in life.

After the procedure, Grace will probably need a second operation to release her heel cords and hamstrings, and a LOT of physiotherapy. As well as intensive physiotherapy in the US and at home, she will continue to attend the Footsteps Centre in Oxfordshire 4 times a year.



Grace's Fund - Fundraising Targets

The cost of our trip to the US will cost around £40,000. This includes the cost of the operations, physiotherapy treatment over there, flights and accomodation, and medical equipment that needs to be purchased.

In addition, Grace will need intensive physiotherapy back in the UK. Private home sessions in the year following the operation will cost around £4,000, and ongoing treatment at the Footsteps Centre will cost £5,000 to £8,000 per year.

This page has been set up for anyone who wants to make a donation to the fund. In addition, friends and family around the country will be arranging their own fundraising events - you will be able to see them as they are arranged through the Grace's Fund team page at Grace's Fund (Team Page)

Thank-you for your support.

Thanks for anyone that has helped -even if you post it elsewhere it will help.

They are very near the total now. They were outside asda in Northampton today with Grace. Tragic that she has to do such stuff to get the help she needs .

The nhs has so many demands that they have to make harsh decisions. I know that there are thousands of kids with horrible problems just as worthy of help. It just happens that this one I know and i cant help thinking what I would be like if that was my daughter.

If she gets the treatment i will update you ---would be great to see her walking into the assembly at school.

Thanks again folks.

AN APPEAL to fund a vital operation for a disabled girl is just £6,000 off its target after a specially designed iPhone app raised a staggering £21,000.

Coupled with money raised from previous fund-raising events, it brings the total to just shy of the £50,000 needed to send five-year-old Grace Windram to America, for surgery that could help her walk for the first time.

And with planned events over the next few weeks expected to raise the remaining money, the Kingsthorpe family is already celebrating.

Helen Windram, Grace’s mum, said: “I nearly fell off my chair when I found out how much the app had raised.
Piss taking bitch.
