A life-changing operation for people with celebral palsy is going to be trialled in the UK thanks to a mother from Northamptonshire.
In 2010, 39-year-old Jo Davies raised more than £40,000 to fly her four-year-old daughter Holly to America for treatment.
She underwent a procedure called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which involves opening up the bones of the spine in the lower back to operate on nerves and relieve spasticity.
For Holly, from Daventry, it meant she could finally stand flat on her feet for the first time without falling over.
And, now eight, her mother said you would struggle to notice any difference between her and other children her age.
But SDR is a treatment not usually funded by the NHS which says the effectiveness has not yet been sufficiently proven.
Now, after four years of campaigning by her mother who wanted more children to benefit from the procedure, the NHS has finally agreed to run a trial.
About 120 children aged between three and 10 who suffer stiffness in their lower limbs as a result of cerebral palsy are set to benefit.
The trial will take place at five hospitals across the country and aims to gather the evidence needed to assess the effectiveness of the treatment.
