Hi, I'm Carolina Lucas, I'm 15 years old and I have cerebral palsy. I have annual treatments and I really need your help to continue. Can you help me? :)
I was born very small, premature, with 29 weeks of gestation and I suffered a Cerebral Palsy, which prevents me from walking. The Cerebral Palsy affects me "only" at motor level (I have some difficulty with my arms and I move in a wheelchair). At the cognitive level I'm very intelligent and eager to learn (I'm a very good student!).
Since I as 3, I have been doing intensive treatments, first in Cuba, recently in a portuguese clinic that follows similar methods (CHS-CEI). The purpose of the treatments is to improve my life quality and I have high hopes of one day being able to walk.
Unfortunately, Portuguese health system doen't support these treatments and it has to be my family to pay them all.
The treatments are done in cycles, ideally for 2 months, during the summer school holidays. Each cycle, lasting 28 days, costs at this time € 5,500. So, I need 11,000 € / year. Here, I ask help to raise the value of one of the cycles (which can be done alone, or together with another, in case my family can pay the rest). The fact that we ask for € 6,000, instead of € 5,500, relates only to the PPL commission amounts (€ 6,000 will be in fact € 5446.50).
I leave you a video of my treatments (Summer / 2019), I hope you like it!
Thank you and kisses full of SUN!
