Charity campaign for two-year-old with cerebral palsy

The parents of a two-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with cerebral palsy have launched a fundraising campaign in order to raise money for physiotherapy and other potential treatments.

Lyra Davis, Cannock, has made wonderful progress in terms of learning to crawl, sit up and push a walker since she was diagnosed with the condition, according to parents Mark Davis and Jane Heggie.

However, young Lyra is still a long way behind her peers at nursery. In fact, due to her condition, she is unable to walk, talk or chew – therefore, the duo have decided to launch a fundraising campaign in order to help Lyra access physiotherapy and expert support.

Mr Davis and Ms Heggie have already reportedly raised enough money for Lyra to go to a physio centre in Slovakia later this summer. However, they are hoping to raise more money at a charity golfing event they have organised in their local community, which will take place at Ingrestre Park Golf Club on 9 May 2017.

Any money raised at the event will go to ‘Lyra Can’ – a charity campaign they have organised in partnership with a registered children’s charity.

Mr Davis said: “We’re working really hard to help our beautiful girl live a happy, mobile and fulfilling life and make sure that ‘Lyra Can’.

“We’d love to get a great turn out from local golfers to come and support us on what should be a great day of golf,” he added.
