Calcutta Works neuromuscular physiotherapist quest to India

 Fortune has blessed !

Excuse , the cheap blog ... but don t judge a story by it s HTML page. 

We found a neuromuscular physiotherapist to help Hannumanesh and Sammi in their village in India. 

I first met Luxmi's son's in late 2010, through an old friend. The boys were told many things about their condition, and Luxmi was confused as to what really was their diagnosis .. so i began the work of finding them a specialist doctor. This took weeks, many connections and long travel .

It is difficult to find a specialist physiotherapist within their locality. Plus , if you travel the 9 hours to the main city ... the queues are lengthy , and often the family are n' t able to get the intensity of assessment they require with such a complex condition as Dunchen's Muscular dystrophy.

So the search began for a specialist - who would be willing to travel to India to see Hannumanesh and Sammu ... and possibility more disabled people in the surrounding villages.

.. and somehow , i found one !

                       Her name is Marion Main and she is a consultant , neuro muscular specialist  physiotherapist from Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. 

Here is Marion below with her daughter after a 10 km run.
