A youngster has taken her very first steps after having life changing surgery in America thanks to generous readers who helped raise £70,000.

Doctors had previously told the family of four-year-old Mae Louisa Lilly Fox, that the youngster may never walk because of her spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy - the most severe form of the condition.

But medics now say Mae could walk completely unaided in the future after the pioneering operation in Missouri.

The Hope For Mae fundraising mission is still continuing to fund Mae’s physiotherapy and after care - Physiotherapy sessions alone can cost around £300 a week.
