Corin Potts prepares for 'life-changing' operation

Help

A four-year-old boy from Yate, South Gloucestershire, is preparing for pioneering surgery which could change his life.

Corin Potts, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 18 months, can only walk with the aid of a frame he was given just before his third birthday.

His parents have been fundraising for a year to raise the £35,000 needed for selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery, which reduces muscle tightness.

Corin will have his operation on Tuesday at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.
