This is a remarkable story of a brave 8-year-old called Christian, who was born prematurely and delivered by emergency caesarean after doctors discovered that his twin brother had passed away whilst undertaking a routine scan.
Four weeks after his birth, Christian was allowed to leave the hospital and go home, his parents thought that the worst battle had been fought and won!
Unfortunately 18 months later, Christian was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and his battle started again.
He was unable to walk unaided, and his parents were advised that a hot tub with good hydrotherapy would help Christian (whilst they started fundraising for the £50,000 operation which was not funded by the NHS).
Christian received his life-changing operation in December 2015 and his parents commented: “We used the hot tub to prepare Christian for the operation and it will play an even more important role in his recovery.”
