Thomas, four, hopes US op will fix his ‘crazy legs’

A BRAVE young schoolboy needs help to walk freely for the first time.

Four-year-old Thomas Brennan suffers from spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, leaving him in constant pain and unable to walk more than a few steps at a time.

Confined to a wheelchair or even a pushchair, the youngster is unable to run or play with friends.

Miss Bussey, from Ushaw Moor, near Durham City, said: “It’s heartbreaking. He can’t play with the other girls and boys. He tries his hardest, but if he tries to run, he falls over.

But medics believe a groundbreaking operation could set him free.

“Thomas calls his legs his ‘crazy legs’. He just understands that if he goes to America, his crazy legs would get fixed.”

But the surgery must be performed in the US and would cost £48,000.
