(Daily Telegraph) – EMILY Sayers is a beautiful baby but endures more pain than most people will have in a lifetime after she suffered severe brain injuries during her birth. The “little ray of sunshine” is the firstborn child of Claire and Ben Sayers, born in 2014. Her brain injuries mean she lives with vision impairment, cerebral palsy and uncontrolled epilepsy that has forced her return to hospital for more than half of her life.

But there is hope for Emily and other children like her because her brain is young and intense but expensive therapy can teach her brain the right pathways. “It’s important to educate people on what she isn’t,” Mrs Sayers said. “Emily is not cerebral palsy, she isn’t seizures, she is a beautiful little girl.” CONTINUE
