Rebekah was born by C section,
born breech and full term, when born she was a perfectly
normal baby. As she was growing it was noticed that she
was doing things slowly.
When Rebekah began to
attend school her family admitted that she could not cope
in mainstream school and she was transferred to a special
school for children with Cerebral palsy. She attended this
school for 9 yeas, until finishing aged 19 years old.
Up until this point Rebekah had been able to do lots
of things for her self such as bathe, get dressed, use the
bathroom, cook, read and write.
sadly from age 23 she
began to deteriorate, she lost her hearing and eventually
Rebekah is now aged 31 and needs care and support with bathing,
feeding, nappy changes, being carried and and looked after 24/7.
Rebekah has a wonderful Dad who helps her a lot, he loves her to
bits and every time he comes home from work he carries his baby
round and she sits on his lap. Rebekah has very helpful sisters
who take care of her.
We just love our precious angel!
Rebekah, Our little friend won her fight against Cockayne
Syndrome and is now free to run and play in heaven.
