Holly is a beautiful, intelligent 6 year old little girl who has quadriplegic Athetoid Cerebral Palsy. Unfortunately this affects her whole body so she is unable to sit unaided, walk, talk or do any day to day/ living skills for herself which we take for granted. Although Holly has cp she is a very bright little girl. she loves all the same things as other little girls her age. she is a huge one direction fan! unfortunately Holly gets fustraited as the struggles to communicate to let everyone know what she wants and needs as she cannot speak. Holly recently had a trial on a Tobi eyegaze communication system, this was very successful, which enabled Holly to communicate to us for the first time. The way in which this device works is that Holly uses her eyes to communicate with the device and this relays what she wants to say to us. This will also enable her to engage in conversation and communicate with others around her. The other main reason why this is so important for Holly is she needs to on a day to day basis advise us when she is feeling poorly or hungry or any other vital situation. HOWEVER this privilage that we all take for granted on a day to day basis comes at a cost, of which the NHS and LEA do not fund or provide, Therefore in order for Holly to have this equipment which gives her a voice we will need to raise the money to do this. The aim of this page is to inform people of sponsorship and fundraising events with regards to raising the money for this device which will take Holly through her childhood and adulthood years. If you would like to help fundraise, have any ideas on how to fundraise or would like to join us on any of the events please feel free to contact us. If you would like more info on the device and cost you may also contact us for this.
