Video: Family try to raise £21k to help year old walk

Have your say

The family of a six-year-old girl are trying to raise £21,000 for an operation to help her walk unaided - after the NHS refused to fund the life-changing treatment.

Little Skye Twyford weighed just 3lb 10oz when she was born 12 weeks early and spent the first three months of her life in hospital. The schoolgirl, who uses a wheelchair, has cerebral palsy and can only shuffle short distances with the help of a walking frame. Last July doctors told Skye’s family the youngster was suitable for selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) which could help her walk unaided.
