The parents of a girl with cerebral palsy have raised £13,000 for her to have an operation which the NHS says it will not pay for.
Natalie rider hopes her daughter Sophie will walk again after the operation.
She is being treated at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, but the NHS will not pay for the operation because they say it is unproven.
Natalie, who has raised the money with the help of her fiancee, Gary, said:
We're hoping that they'll cut the spinal cord - so that'll kill all the bad nerves in her legs - and then make the good nerves that are working get stronger. We're hoping that one day she'll be able to get up and walk; get some independence for herself or even just crawl for herself.
