Dreams Come True

Talitha's Dream

Talitha’s Dream

Talitha is 12 years old and lives in Northern Ireland with her Mum and 6 siblings. Talitha has Down’s Syndrome, Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and a cardiac condition. She is wheelchair bound and her condition means she misses out on many everyday childhood activities.

Talitha’s dream was to have a swing that could accommodate her wheelchair, so she could join in playing with her brothers and sisters.

Talitha’s mum wrote to say:

“Thank you for giving my child freedom. A little girl who can barely hold her head up and has no balance to sit or walk, who is reliant on others for the most basic of needs, can fly! “
