Weʼre raising £5,000 to To help Liam with his rehabilitation and to reach his full potential – fund activity for private physiotherapy sessions. John Evans is walking up the Wrekin every day in July to raise funds. Walker Health and Safety Services sponsored him for day 9 out of 31!
Liam had just turned 5 when he was diagnosed with burkitts leukaemia in December 2016.
During the chemotherapy, while neutropenic with no immune system, Liam contracted enterovirus in his spinal fluid which caused encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), resulting in a severe acquired brain injury.
Liam is now 9 years old and has been in remission from the leukaemia for 4 years. Unfortunately due to the brain injury Liam is wheelchair dependant, non verbal, tube fed and trying to relearn the skills he once had.
As the human brain isn’t fully developed until 25 years of age, the hope is that with the correct therapy input other parts of Liam’s brain will be able to learn to do the activities that the injured parts of the brain used to do.
Liam has come on so much in so many ways since he first suffered from the brain injury but there is still such a long way to go. Therapy on the NHS is very limited, therefore to help Liam with his rehabilitation and to reach his full potential we also need to fund private physiotherapy sessions.
