A life-changing operation that will help hundreds of people with cerebral palsy is to be trialled for the first time in the UK thanks to years of campaigning by a family from Northamptonshire.
In 2010, four-year-old Holly Davies from Daventry went to America for surgery that allowed her to stand flat on her feet and walk without falling over for the very first time.
Her mum and Dad say they are delighted that many more will now be given the chance to live a better life without having to raise the tens of thousands of pounds needed to have the operation abroad.
