11 July 2016 - When Oliver Sharman was 4 months old he couldn't raise up his head. When the parent’s asked, they were told he was born premature so his progress was expected to be delayed. At 8 months old Oliver couldn't sit; again they were told that this was expected with a premature birth. When Oliver was one, he couldn't stand. Oliver was referred to a pediatrician, and diagnosed with Spastic quadriplegia of cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy cannot be cured, but Oliver has been chosen as a good candidate for a life changing operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR). The procedure isn’t funded by the NHS neither is the required post operation physiotherapy. Oliver is scheduled to undergo an operation known as Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy accompanied by physiotherapy that will reduce lower limb spasticity The cost of the procedure by Great Ormond Street Hospital is £27,000 and the cost of rehabilitation is £10,000 per year.
