Little Gabriel Kendall, four, from Ilkey, west Yorkshire, loves to play with his brothers but it’s not so easy for him to join in with fun and games – as he has ᴄᴇʀᴇʙʀᴀʟ ᴘᴀʟsʏ and can barely walk.
His pảents are desperately trying to raise £40,000 for ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ that may help their four-year-old walk.
Sarah and Drew Kendell are proud parents for four-year-old triplets Max, Louis and Gabriel who were born ᴠɪᴀ ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ 10 weeks early, Together the trio weighed under 10lbs and spent seven weeks in special baby care units. – who has ᴀᴜᴛɪsᴍ and sᴘᴀsᴛɪᴄ ᴅɪᴘʟᴇɢɪᴀ ᴄᴇʀᴇʙʀᴀʟ ᴘᴀʟsʏ.
Gabriel, from Ilkey, west Yorkshire, ʜᴀs ᴘᴇʀᴍᴀɴᴇɴᴛʟʏ ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛᴇᴅ ʟᴇɢ ᴍᴜsᴄʟᴇs, meaning he walks on the tips of his toes – which twists the bones over time and makes matters worse. As such, the little boy struggles to keep up with his lively brothers – who love to play football and play and hide-and-seek.
Gabriel, who has a condition called sᴘᴀsᴛɪᴄ ᴅɪᴘʟᴇɢɪᴀ ᴄᴇʀᴇʙʀᴀʟ ᴘᴀʟsʏ, has been selected for an ᴏᴘᴇʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ at Leeds General Infirmary to help him walk – but the £40,000 procedure, called selective ᴅᴏʀsᴀʟ ʀʜɪᴢᴏᴛᴏᴍʏ. His beloved brothers have helped launch a campaign to raise money
Max said: “We want the doctors to fix his leg so we can all play together.”
Louis added: “It’d be the best Christmas present ever if his leg was better.”
Gabriel’s birth was particularly difficult and he was later found to have ᴄᴇʀᴇʙʀᴀʟ ᴘᴀʟsʏ and ᴀᴜᴛɪsᴍ. Medics have so far tried ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ and even a Botox ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ to attempt to loosen Gabriel’s muscles – but nothing has yet worked. Now, neurosurgeon Mr John Goodden plans to cut nerve roots in Gabriel’s spinal column that control his leg muscles. The fundraising campaign has so far garnered just under half of the £40,000 target.
Mum Sarah, 39, said: “The response has been astonishing. There are some very kind people out there.”
