A four-year-old little girl, Bailey Walters-Lawrence has had her £2,000 specially adapted pushchair stolen from her home in Kilburn, London. The young girl who suffers from cerebral palsy is waiting to undergo life-changing surgery.
Make a Wish Foundation had organised a trip to Disneyland, Paris and
Bailey was on this magical holiday when thieves took the pushchair. Her
mother, Shermel Walters-Lawrence believes the family were deliberately
targeted when they were away.
Shermel told the Evening Standard: "We were granted a wish and some family members put some money for Bailey to go to Disneyland to meet the Princesses."
"When we got back the shed had been broken into and they'd taken it.
"The NHS won't give me another one, so we'll have to buy it."
Bailey, is due to undergo Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) treatment at Great Ormond Street next month, after a community fundraising campaign secured the £30,000 needed to pay for the operation. However, the family still need to find a further £15,000 for Bailey's aftercare and now another £2,000 for a new buggy.
The Met Police confirmed "No arrests have been made and enquiries continue."
