Rhys and Rebecca Bailey-Brown are the latest Wagga residents to feel the full affect of what happens when the city rallies for a worthy cause. The couple’s youngest daughter, Alice, has grade five cerebral palsy and is only capable of involuntary movements. But a charity movie screening on Friday night ensures the couple will be able to afford extensive physiotherapy for three-year-old Alice.
“Alice is not immobile but she can’t sit up or hold her neck up,” Mr Bailey-Brown said. “If we don’t do the physiotherapy she will be wheelchair bound for the rest of her life. She’s not going to be able to do anything significant but our hope is that she’ll be able to stand up at bare minimum.”
This simple movement will ensure Alice will be able to sit in the car with her five older siblings instead of riding in the back in her wheelchair.
