A FAMILY from Upton are to be separated for a year as they seek medical treatment that could help a three-year-old girl walk unaided for the very first time. Rhylee Brown was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of one, and needs regular physiotherapy to stimulate her muscles. But her mum, Dawn, claims the NHS is short of the necessary staff and unable to provide her daughter with the physiotherapy she requires. Without the necessary treatment, Rhylee, who cannot stand or walk unaided, her parents said she would have to use a wheelchair. Dawn said Rhylee has been undergoing just one 45-minute physiotherapy session every six to eight weeks, organised by the Oak Tree Centre in Huntingdon. However, the sessions have stopped since two of the service's physiotherapists retired. Last year, she did not see a physiotherapist for four months, Dawn said. The 31-year-old, of Green Lane, Upton, is now planning to raise £5,000 to fly Rhylee to Tampa, Florida, in September for intensive physiotherapy sessions at a specialist centre.
