Funding cuts to the NHS left my 13 year old son Ben, without the vital treatment he needs following major spinal surgery that he was already under the NHS for.
Ben is asking the CCG to fund one treatment appointment a week for his vital rehabilitation to allow him a pain free life and to walk independently.
Why is this important?
Ben's body is extremely weak and its vital that he receives treatment to build up his muscles and treat the scar tissue on his muscles caused by years of passive stretching.
Without treatment Ben's muscles can't develop correctly as he grows leaving him in pain on a daily basis.
