Help For Oskar
November 28, 2014
Can we help? YES WE CAN.
This is the first of a number of posts designed to help raise some of the many thousands of pounds needed to help young Oskar Pycroft.
There has been a huge wave of emotion from Gasheads urging Bristol Rovers Football Club and its supporters to assist in raising funds towards the cost of a hugely expensive operation in the USA that Oskar needs.
There will be a Christmas Quiz Night at The Memorial Stadium on Tuesday 16th December 2014 and a bucket collection at the New Years Day match with Torquay United to raise money for Oskar and his family. More details of the Quiz Night will be available early next week.
Oskar is 6 and has cerebral palsy. There is a surgery called Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) which can help improve the quality of his life and is his only chance of being able to walk. Six year-old Oskar Pycroft from Whitchurch is unable to sit, stand or walk independently. He is in constant pain with his muscles and joints.
The NHS have brought an expert in this operation to Bristol but it has been decided that Oskar does not meet the strict criteria for funding towards his operation. This means that Oskar’s only hope is to raise the £70,000 required to pay to go to Saint Louis Children’s Hospital in Missouri USA.
