Family and friends of 5 year old Keira are uniting once again to raise money to help pay for much needed therapies for Keira. Please help.


Keira is our 5 year old daughter who unfortunately suffered a traumatic brain injury at birth due to lack of oxygen. When Keira was born she had no heart beat and had to be resusitated. After 12 minutes Keira took her first breath but the damage was allready done and is irreversable. Keira Was diagnosed with H.I.E soon after birth (hypoxic isquemic encephalopathy) and in the past 5 years her diagnosis has increased and now includes athetoid spastic quadriplejic cerebral palsy, epilepsy , acid reflux, mallory weis syndrome, visually impaired and partially deaf in her right ear.

Keira is such a happy little girl and despite all these set backs she NEVER stops smiling, laughing and most importantly she never stops trying to better herself. Every day in Keiras life is a fight. Since the age of 4 months she has had a number of therapies to help her and no matter who the therapist is they always say that she has so much willpower and strength and is such and amazing little girl to work with.

We have recently met up with a surgeon called Dr. Nazarov who does a special type of micro surgery consisting of a small incision to the fascia which helps release the muscle a little bit more to help reduce the spasticity. Keira will undergo a 30 minute surgery where the surgeon will do 21 micro incisions on the parts of her body that he feels need to be released in order for her to have better motor function. This operation costs €4500 ($5900) which we hope to do the middle of May. We have also booked up for Keiras 4th round of intensive therasuit therapy which consists of 3 weeks therapy for 4 hours a day using the therasuit method. The cost of this therapy is €2500 ($3300). Please take a minute to watch Keira in action on her personal Facebook page which is called Therapy for Keira/Terapia para Keira. This page has a number of videos and pictures of Keira doing her therapy in the past. Keira is our little superstar. Please help us help her to grow stronger and stronger till she can take her first steps on her own. Thank you for your time, please share Keiras story.
