Matilda Kelly is 2 years old. She suffers from Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy, which means she is unable to walk unaided and has to rely on a walker. She loves to run, dance and play.
Her parents are trying to raise £70,000 to take Matilda to America for corrective orthopaedic surgery that will improve her life immeasurably. It means that their little girl will be able to wear pretty shoes rather than the specially prescribed boots that she currently wears.
