There is a superb fundraiser to take place in Crewe on Friday 22nd of November in aid of a special little girl called Mischa and will be held in the Carlsberg suite at Crewe Alexandra Football Club.
All money raised will go to Mischa’s Wish Fund and ticket prices are only £5.00 per adult and £2.00 per child.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be attending, there will also be a Buffet, Auction/Raffle, DJ, Disco, Face Painting and a Magician.
To purchase tickets please call Sarah Edwards on 07703387534.
Mischa was born at 28 weeks , weighing only 2lb 6oz.
She spent 14 weeks in NICU where she was diagnosed with various problems including spastic diplegia cerebral palsy.
Mischa was very late meeting milestones, she managed to walk at nearly 3 years with the aid of a walker and now at 6 she wears splints daily. Whilst she can walk independently, Mischa struggles, she loses balance, trips and falls frequently and can not do any long distance without needing her wheelchair. She tires easily, has pain most days and her legs and feet turn inwards whilst she walks.
Her best and only option is surgery in the USA called selective dorsal rhizotomy.
This surgery cuts and parts the nerves that send the unwanted messages to her limbs which causes the spasticity.
The NHS do not currently fund this surgery here in the UK which is why the USA is Mischa’s only option.
The fundraising team need to raise approximately £40,000.00 for this, it may sound a huge amount of money but the results are amazing!
Mischa would have a next to normal walking pattern and be able to do everything her friends are doing.
She would be able to run, jump, skip and just about everything else that at 6 years old she wants so badly to be able to do!
