Billy Humphrey's family are trying to raise £85,000 to pay for physiotherapy and surgery so that Billy can get around without the use of sticks or a wheelchair.

Billy Humpheys from Adderbury near Banbury, needs 85,000 for surgery to help him walk. He is pictured in early 2018 with his mum and dad, Karen and Peter.

The campaign has so far raised almost £35,000.

Doctors are stumped as to what is stopping Billy being able to walk, with his parents Karen and Peter travelling around the country to find an answer to little avail.

Karen has said: "Pete and I have tried several different treatments to hellp Billy we have taken to a chiropractor, an osteopath, cognitive therapy but as he gets older we realise we are running out of time as he is of an age now where he wants to be like his friends.

"He wants to run, jump, skip and ride a bike and as his parents we want to get him there.

"Our ultimate goal is to raise enough funds for Billy to have an operation to reduce the spasticity in his legs.

"Billy is not quite ready for this operation.

"The operation is a gruelling five to six hours and more importantly Billy will require three to four sessions of private physiotherapy a week for up to three years.

"We have a huge amount of work to do in strengthening him physically and mentally so that he is strong enough for this procedure.

"To fund this operation and the physiotherapy pre and post operation along with equipment and intensive fitness sessions we need to raise approximately £85,000."
