Bailey’s mum, Shermel Walters- Lawrence has been consistently been trying to raise money for her daughter’s operation. You may have seen her on ITV News, heard her on BBC Radio and read about the Bailey Wish in Newspapers like the Evening Standard.
I came across her story on Instagram, and i was moved when i saw a video clip of Bailey in her ballet outfit and then reading about her story. Bailey who is just four years old, has Cerebral Palsy and without her walker/brace she is unable to sit, stand or walk. The discomfort Bailey has everyday is unbearable.
Between September 2015 and the last 2 weeks Bailey has actually snapped the bone and tendons on her right foot which has now made it impossible for her to weight-bear and she is walking on the side of her foot to alleviate her pain. She is now in a lot of discomfort and there is not much more I can do to help her, aside from give her painkillers. To hear a child so young telling you that “it hurts”, “everything hurts” is absolutely heartbreaking. I am so overwhelmed with sadness and have a feeling of total helplessness for Bailey. -Shermel
Bailey was to have a Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, but unfortunately was told at her pre-op assessment with her Neurosurgeon, that the funding (£30,000) from the NHS had been withdrawn.
“SDR is currently not available on the NHS and procedures take place on a self-funding basis” – www.gosh.nhs.uk
This has been a daunting task but Shermel is determined to make Bailey’s Wish come true.
