Sdr4Seb is Charity set up by the Family of Seb Strudwick a 3 year boy suffering with Cerebral Palsy. The aim is to raise enough money to send Seb to America for a life changing operation that will enable him to sit, stand and walk independently. The operation led by a team at the St Louis Children's Hospital has a 100% success rate over 20 years and the lead neurosurgeon is certain that Seb will benefit from Selective Dorsal Rhyzotomy (SDR).
Seb's Father Daniel is an employee at the Brackley Based Mercedes GP Team and has with the help of friends and colleagues put together an eBay charity auction for F1 Memorabilia. To help the fund along Daniel has collected items himself from his personal collection and has also been given many items by the teams on the grid. Mark Sutton of Sutton images has been integral to the collection of items and has included many limited pictures from the archives of his Towcester Based business, Mark says "Seb and his family are local to me and as soon as I heard about his condition and the need for his operation I wanted to assist as much as I could. I knew that I could help them through my contacts in the F1 industry and help make a huge impact into the amount they needed to raise for this journey. The F1 teams have been amazing in their response and I am confident that we will collect the necessary funds to make this a reality."
The family need in excess of £45,000 to fund the operation and aftercare for Seb. Much of his rehabilitation will come in the months after the operation when physio everyday will be imperative to the success of the trip.
