Why I'm Here - Chloe's Story
Updated: May 7, 2020
This is four year old Chloe.
Born 10 weeks premature, weighing under three pounds and having suffered the tragic loss of her twin sister, Phoebe, Chloe had a difficult start. Although born with little sign of life, she was thankfully revived but had suffered a considerable brain injury.
She spent the first few weeks of her life in and out of hospital undergoing surgery and was soon diagnosed with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and Global Developmental Delay.
Chloe's incredible family work hard every day to incorporate into their lives the many therapies required to keep Chloe well and happy: physiotherapy, speech and language therapists, occupational therapy and neurology - to name just a few.
She is currently unable to walk or talk - the simple elements of life that many other four year olds take for granted - but with the right equipment and assistance, her situation can improve.
My 500 mile challenge is designed to inspire as many donations for Chloe as possible.
