About Izzy’s Twinkle Toes Appeal
My name is Izzy and I’m nearly four.
I’ve got a twin sister called Gabby and a big brother called Charlie. Me and Gabby look a bit like each other but we’re not the same because I’ve got cerebral palsy in my legs, so I can’t walk very well. When we’re at nursery, sometimes we have to do dancing which I enjoy, but because my legs are stiff I can’t put my feet flat on the floor, I have to just watch. I have to wear special boots called Piedro boots because normal ones from the shoe shop just keep coming off. At Christmas the doctor put some special casts on my legs to try and stretch them. I had to wear them all day, even in bed! They weren’t very comfy but because they were pink I didn’t mind. What I didn’t like was when it snowed I couldn’t go outside and play with Charlie and Gabby because my wellies wouldn’t fit over them.
Mummy and Daddy have been on the computer talking to a different doctor in America who has done a lot of operations on other girls and boys so they can put their feet flat. If we get enough money I would like to go to America to see if he can fix my legs so that me and Gabby can wear the same pretty shoes and I can stop falling over all the time.
