Appeal to raise £70,000 to get Mae walking

Mae Fox, from Doncaster

The parents of a four-year-old girl from Doncaster face a race against time to raise tens of thousands of pounds for surgery which could change her life.

Mae Fox has cerebral palsy and needs a walking frame and wheelchair to get about, but now a hospital in America is offering treatment to help her walk - but it comes at a price - and with a deadline.

To get about she crawls, uses a wheelchair or a walking frame - or her new favourite toy - a bright pink car.

But now her parents have launched an appeal to raise £70,000 by Christmas for an operation next january in America. The dream is that the suregry would allow Mae to walk unaided.
