The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Aleisha Edwards: October 2015
Hey guys! Halloween is coming up this Saturday and those who know me know that my family and I decorate the house (Castlefields, Tattenhall) every year for the trick or treaters! This year we have gone bigger and better with life size animated props such as a 6 foot butler and witch and we are currently in the middle of making a tunnel / walk way!
This year we are doing it for charity and some of you may have seen in the paper or on Facebook the story of a little boy called Aash from Shocklach! Those of you who know young Aash will more than likely know his story. If you don't here is a little insight in to his life from his family and what his fundraising is all about! "He is 4 years old and has the most infectious smile. At the age of 15 months Aash was diagnosed with diplegic cerebral palsy which affects the lower half of the body. He is unable to sit and stand unaided, or walk without a K walker. He has to use a standing frame to standup but can only tolerate it for short periods of time due to pain. He has high muscle tone & walks on his tip toes and has to wear day and night time splints with gaiters at night. Aash is constantly in pain due to this and is on medication day and night. There is no cure for this. In July Aash was referred for an SDR operation. It is major surgery on the spine but will mainly relieve pain & reduce spasticity. Potentially life changing surgery for Aash. It will help him become more independent, pain free & will help him tolerate longer periods of standing on his frame, will help him walk with his K walker with his heels down & pain free. The operation itself is funded by the NHS but the intense physio pre op and post op is not. This has to be privately funded and we need to raise £20,000 so we would be so grateful if you could support us by purchasing a wristband for yourself or for someone you know."
Follow Aash and his family on Facebook — "Aash-Jai Quality of Life Fund" Please take a look at the page and keep updated with events and Aash's progress. https://www.facebook.com/AashJaiQualityofLifeFund.
So please pop by and visit us on Saturday and say hello and of course get treats! And if you wish to donate towards changing Aash's life for the better then please do bring any change whether big or small as no matter what amount it will be greatly appreciated!! Thankyou! And hopefully see you Saturday!
