En­joy some pam­per­ing and help Leo to walk

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

THE mum of a four-year-old boy who needs to raise £40,000 for a life-chang­ing op­er­a­tion is hold­ing a pam­per evening.

Leo Waites, who was born with cere­bral palsy, needs to fly out to Mis­souri in Amer­ica to un­dergo a four-hour pro­ce­dure, called se­lec­tive dor­sal rhi­zo­tomy.

Leo is cur­rently in a wheel­chair, but this op­er­a­tion could al­low him to take his first-ever steps so he can even­tu­ally play foot­ball, go ice skat­ing and en­joy danc­ing.

His mum, Joanne Hol­land (23), of Hemp­sted Road, Hampton, , will hold the event to­mor­row, from 7pm, at the South Grove Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Wood­ston.

There will be a hair­dresser, make up artist, spray tan­ner, mini mas­sages, fa­cials, man­i­cures and prod­ucts and gifts to buy. There will also be re­fresh­ments.
