Time is running out for a little boy who needs to raise £35,000 to make his dream of walking unaided come true.
The family of eight-year-old Cameron Garner from Sprotborough are trying to raise the funds to pay for a life-changing operation at Leeds General Infirmary on October 31, but with only two weeks left it looks as though they will be forced to cancel.
Cameron was born with Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy, a neurological condition which causes the muscles in his legs to become painfully tight and unable to walk without assistance. Help is available for him in the form of a procedure called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which will loosen the muscles.
The community rallied round when the Get Cameron Walking appeal was launched, raising £15,000 towards the £35,000 total.
Cameron’s dad Malcolm said: “We desperately want the operation to go ahead at the end of the month but we have a long way to go and people have already done so much to help us.”
