Odin’s Appeal Starts!
04 January 2012 by barb
Meet Odin – one very cute 2 year old!
Odin was born extremely prematurely (at 26 weeks) and suffers from Cerebral Palsy.
His condition leaves him with significant mobility issues in both his arms and legs – something that greatly impacts his mobility. Odin finds it very hard to sit without support – even for very short periods of time and has limited floor mobility, having just recently learnt to roll and crawl on his tummy.
A Second Skin Body Suit, like the ones we’ve previously funded for Amy, Jocelyn and Piper, would allow Odin to sit without support for the first time and to walk independently using his walker. He’d wear it every day, allowing his muscles to work better and get stronger.
These differences would make a huge difference to Odin’s quality of life and give him access to a much greater range of play experiences.
Odin’s mum is a very young single mum who adores him, and who wants him to have every possible opportunity to develop to his potential – but she’s never going to be able to do this alone on a carer’s pension.
Odin’s Suit will cost $2,735 and there is no government funding available to assist with that cost – so we’ve launched this appeal to raise that funding.
If you’d like to donate to Odin’s Appeal just go to the bottom of his appeal page to find out how.
