A four-year-old girl’s dream of walking for the first time could become a reality if enough money is raised for her to have an operation in America.
Rosie-May Edwards, who lives in Weston’s Bournville estate with her parents Josie and Simon, is having a ball thrown for her at the town’s Grand Pier to raise the funds later on this year.
Her family is looking to raise £80,000 so she can have a selective dorsal rhizotomy operation – which could give her the opportunity to take her first steps.
Rosie-May’s mother Josie said: “It’s her dream to walk and she talks about it every day and I know that this surgery will change her life.
“She can start enjoying the same kind of things that any four-year-old should and will have more independence.”
