Pranav's Wish to Walk

Pranav's Wish to Walk

This is the support story of a six-year-old boy, Pranav, from Milton Keynes who is suffering from Cerebral Palsy. According to his parents, he was a premature baby, born at 30 weeks, and since then he has been facing basic developmental milestone challenges like walking and crawling.

At 15 months, doctors have confirmed that Pranav is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. A patient who is suffering from it will have stiff muscles and poor coordination. But a spinal surgery called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy will help ease the muscles and remove the stiffness. The surgery can be largely beneficial to Pranav as his sensory nerves will be operated in order to make his spinal function precisely.

Pranav will be operated at St Louis Children's Hospital in the USA provided only if this surgery is funded by the NHS. Though the doctor Park has been scheduled to operate Pranav, the funds became a necessity. The surgery will help Pranav to walk on his own legs without any help.

The funds are now being raised in order to operate Pranav ASAP and give aftercare like intense physiotheraphy. Moreover, Pranav is looking forward to walk like his friends while living a normal life. Just4Children website has always aimed to give basic infrastructure to disabled children. The site has now raised funds for Pranav's medical treatment. So far, the site could help many children and fulfil their dreams to strive hard in lives.

His parents revealed that the surgery date has been scheduled on April 18, 2019, and people have been very supportive all these days. The money raised will immediately go to his fund and Pranav is all excited to be spastic-free. Parents have thanked each and everyone who has helped them to increase donations and supported the cause.
