CP Boy Wants ‘Magic Legs’ Like His Twin Sister

March 4, 2016

The parents of twins born with cerebral palsy are calling on the NHS to allow life altering surgery that was offered to only one of their children to be made available to everyone who needs it rather than a select few.

Emma and Phil Elbourne’s 3-year-old daughter Ava was able to have an operation that would allow her to walk, but her brother, who has the same condition, was denied the life changing operation.

    I saw an item about this on the BBC News. Thought that it was dreadful where there are twins that they don’t both get the op. How nasty can you get to give one sibling the op and not the other? Though I agree all children who it could help should be given the op. As we keep getting told we’re the 5th richest country in the world, so we should be able to help our disabled children better than we do.

    I’m amazed that both children didn’t get the operation.. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to explain to the child why he can’t have the same as his sister?

What are you thinking?
