Family and friends of Camberley boy Numan Milton-Tomkins are getting set to take part in the Frimley Lodge ‘Parkrun’ on Saturday 14th July to help raise funds for the five year old to have a life changing operation.
- Nuiman has Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy
- They are raising money so that he can have an operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) to enable him to walk unaided
- Parkrun takes place on Saturday 14th July
- His family need to raise £60,000
The group, made up of parents and children, most of whom attend Sandringham Infants School with Numan, hope to raise £2000 to help him get his dream of walking unaided for the first time.
The 5-year-old has Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy, making the muscles in his legs painfully tight leaving him unable to walk or stand independently but, a procedure called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) could change all that and give him the chance to run around the playground with his classmates. But for his dream to become a reality his family desperately need to raise £60,000 so Numan can travel to St Louis Children’s Hospital, Missouri and have the operation.
Helping Numan’s family raise the money for the operation are national charity, Caudwell Children, who support families caring for sick and disabled children.
