Team Bailey

Bailey is a determined strong willed boy who wants to be independent just like his twin brother Cooper.

Bailey's Story:
Hi I'm Bailey, me and my twin brother Cooper were born very early.  Mummy calls us her miracle babies.  I have Cerebral Palsy and Cooper has a zipper were the doctors fixed his heart.  We go to Yamba Public School and we're in Year 2.  I fly on a plane to go to Sydney to have my Botox.  I love flying on the plane because I get to chew bubble-gum so my ears don't hurt.  I have Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy and Occupational Therapy regularly. I can swim without my floaties  and I  play for the Under 8 Breakers team with Yamba Football Club,  I am really good at Jiu-jitsu because I go to BJJ Yamba every week. I want to be able to ride on my skate board, play hand ball and walk just like my brother Cooper.  It is going to take a lot of hard work but I want to be able to do these things myself.

We need to purchase a vehicle and have it converted for wheel chair access. Bailey is a growing boy and it is getting harder physically to lift him in and out of the car to put him in his wheelchair.  As a 7year old independent boy he wants to do everything for himself, he gets embarrassed for me (mum ) to lift him in and out of the car.
Bailey has to have major surgery on his hips and femur bones.  This will require extensive rehabilitation with many therapists involved.  With Team Bailey we hope to raise the money to cover the cost of this therapy and any additional equipment that may be required.
