This is Olivia. She’s coming up for one year old, she lives in Bielsko-Biala and we have to say she’s very cute!
Olivia’s mum, Kamila, is 24 years old, a single parent and like any mother, she is determined to give her daughter the best possible start in life.
She took care of herself during her pregnancy, regularly visited her GP and also had prenatal diagnosis in a professional medical center. There was no reason to expect anything unusual.
“The first shock for us was the deformation of her feet. Actually her feet didn’t have the shape of a foot at all– they were “folded” and her toes were “stuck” to Olivia’s tibias. The second shock for us was the result of USG test – Olivia only had one kidney.” – Jola Kumorek, Olivia’s Aunt
Every little penny counts for Olivia and her family. Only £1 can make a massive difference
We've reached out to a number of potential sponsors and we're hoping that some of them will be able to aid us in reaching our goal and help Olivia.
Please feel free to join us on the ride. Whether it's one day, a couple of days or the whole journey. You're more than welcome to be part of it. If you're crazy enough to join us for the whole trip please let us know as soon as possible. The more the merrier, however, it might make a difference with accommodation, pace etc.
Whether it's social media, your local cycling club, your workplace or a group of friends please spread the word. Not only does it help Olivia but it helps us to raise awareness about spina bifida in general. Share and hashtag #ox2bb
