With your support, Ben raised £60,000 to pay for his life changing operation, post-op physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
Ben is 11, and lives in Sheringham, Norfolk.
Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) is an operation used to improve spasticity (muscle stiffness) in cerebral palsy.
This excessive stiffness in Ben's leg muscles has impaired his ability to learn to walk.
Spasticity causes pain, and, over time, shortening of muscles and tendons, joint contractures and bone deformities.
Ben decided that he wanted to help fund the operation that will change his life. So he wrote a book. Not just any book. This book has a magical and fantastical storyline.
