What happens next?

Welcome to I AM RUPERT

This is Rupert a.k.a Roopop

The effects of cerebral palsy vary enormously from child to child. Even at its most severe, with the right support and treatment, the symptoms can be eased. Most children with cerebral palsy go on to lead a full and independent life in the future.

Some children won’t experience any learning difficulties while others will need specialist help.

If as a result of their physical and/or learning difficulties a child does have special educational needs, they may still do well in a mainstream school with extra support. Specialist schools may also be an option. The earlier the child can get the right help, the more they will benefit in the long run.

The next fund raiser for Rupert is happening on September 15th by Ruperts Dad, Paul. He will be cycling 284km, 1km for each day that Rupert spent in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and 1km for each day we missed George. The route has been chosen wisely to go through the National Forest between Seville and Granada. The trek is to take around 3 days and all proceeds and donations go to Rupert to fund his on going treatment. You can see more about Rupert's treatment here
