Julie Wood’s daughter Mili underwent life-changing spinal surgery at the age of 17 at Southampton Children’s Hospital to correct an 86 degree curve in her spine.
She said: “Despite living in Cheshire, we didn’t hesitate to travel to Southampton to see spinal surgeon Evan Davies after researching his work online. Three hospitals refused to carry out surgery on Mili because of the high risk involved but Evan offered us a lifeline and we are so grateful to him.”
“Surgeons like Evan and the staff around them deserve all the extra support they can get and we’re extremely proud to support Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity.”
