Biography

Christopher is the youngest of four, he is stubborn, determined, and full of spunk. He doesn’t let much get in his way. Christopher loves playing for his soccer team Northcote City DSR.
Here is some of his story.

Christopher was born on the 6th March 2008, after a very fast 13-minute birth. Everything seemed normal, after a few months we noticed that he wasn’t using his right hand.
Christopher was diagnosed on Christmas Eve 2008 with Right Hemiplegia secondary to presumed perinatal left cerebral artery stroke, 6 months later a further diagnosis of bilateral spastic diplegia was added.

Just as we started to adjust to all the tests, procedures, therapies, and doctors’ appointments. Christopher was diagnosed with Uncontrolled Epilepsy and complex partial focal seizures. Christopher’s seizures last between 30 seconds and 2.5 hours, requiring lots of medical intervention.

In July 2016 surgeons raised the issue that Christopher would require major orthopaedic surgery. We began the journey, after many delays which included in 2017 Christopher being diagnosed with PTSD from medical Trauma, and surgery postponed three days before it was scheduled due to Covid-19. Christopher will finally be having his surgery early in June.
