Katie Byrne (aged 7) is just like all other little girls her age, she loves to play and have fun. But Katie has spastic diplegia cerebral palsy which restricts her movement and makes her muscles tight which makes it impossible for her to walk like other children her age. Katie has been accepted to have an operation called selective dorsal rhizotomy. The operation involves cutting the nerves at the base of Katie's spine that cause the abnormal tone in her legs. This will permanently reduce the spasticity in Katie's lower limbs, improving her sitting and standing postures significantly, and help her walk unaided. 

We have a number of people taking part in the womens mini marathon in Dublin on 2nd June 2014. if you would like to sponsor the Katie's dream to walk team to help towards raising the last of the E60,000 we need to get katie to the usa please click on the donate button.
