Alfie Smith

This is Alfie Smith. Alfie is a little boy who has Cerebral Palsy. Alfie had never walked, knelt, or even stood up on his own, he was always aided with a Kay-walker. Alfie needed to raise over £50,000 for an Selective dorsal rhizotomy operation to enable him to walk. We followed Alfie’s journey, we fundraised and campaigned, and after 14 weeks Alfie exceeded his target and is following a strict physio plan, which is proving to be very successful. Alfie can now stand unaided for up to 60 seconds for the first time in 10 years, he has also progressed to the next stage, using quad sticks to walk and we are hoping in the future he will be up walk independently and will be playing football with his younger brother.
