Family will join the fun at the Triple Run
10:00am Wednesday 18th June 2014 in News
LITTLE Milla Frobisher will join her family as they take on the Triple Run for Acorns Children's Hospice on Sunday.
Eight-year old Milla Frobisher from St Peter's, Worcester, has severe cerebral palsy and has regular stays at the hospice on Bath Road.
To help raise much needed funds for the charity, her dad Tony has signed up the whole family to take part in the annual event and already they have raised over £750.
As Milla cannot walk or sit, she will be pushed around the course at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, accompanied by her dad, mum Rini and twin sister Louisa.
The girls were born 16 weeks premature as triplets, each weighing fewer than two pounds.
Sadly, eldest triplet Jewel lived for just 17 days.
After six months in hospital and numerous operations on their heart and eyes, Louisa and Milla were sent home.
Since then Louisa, who is partially sighted, has developed well but Milla unfortunately developed severe cerebral palsy.
She needs constant care and is fed through a stomach tube.
Mr Frobisher said: “Acorns helps us as a family by giving us a break from the non-stop challenges of caring for Milla.
“She has regular stays in the hospice where she enjoys the sensory room, music sessions and interacting with the staff and volunteers.
"For us, it gives us time to relax, catch up on sleep and spend quality time with Louisa, as caring for Milla takes up so much of our time.
“For some one kilometre may not be far, but for others walking one metre is impossible. Milla may not be able to walk or run with us, but she will be smiling as we push her round the course.”
