Last week, Susanna Petersburska and her family flew out to the US for her life changing operation that you helped us to raise funds for earlier this year.
Brave Susanna has written a heartfelt letter of thanks to the Frankie & Benny’s team and all our guests who helped us to raise those vital funds and make her dream a reality.
Susanna who suffers from cerebral palsy, travelled to St Louis, Missouri with her mum, dad and older sister last week and is scheduled to undergo the operation tomorrow, Thursday 25th October. The operation will help Susanna to walk unaided for the first time. The family expect to be in America for 5 weeks before heading back to the UK to undergo intensive physio therapy.
Susanna’s letter stated “I would like to thank all the people who helped raise money for me and for your support, you are great. I love you from Susanna.” I’m sure you’ll agree that words from such a brave and inspiring little girl make us feel very proud. We would also like to thank you, our guests, we couldn’t have done it without you! We will keep you posted on Susanna’s progress over the coming weeks and months.
