Little fighter ais nominated for Best of Hartlepool Award
Just over six months ago little Dottie O’Keefe could hardly walk due to her cerebral palsy.
But now she is walking tall and has amazed doctors with her progress after having a £35,000 operation that kind Hartlepool supporters helped to pay for.
And now there’s even more good news for the girl dubbed a ‘little fighter’ by her mum - because she’s become the first nomination in this year’s Best of Hartlepool Awards.
Four-year-old Dottie spent five hours on the operating table at Leeds General Infirmary in March for the operation to her spine called a selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR).
