Happy times: Lily Collison and her son Tommy

It took until he was around one-year-old for Lily Collison to first hear the term 'cerebral palsy' in relation to her third son, Tommy.

Lily had enjoyed a normal pregnancy and birth and she and husband Denis were looking forward to happy times ahead with their new baby boy and older sons, Patrick and John, then aged six and four.

However, just over one year later, Tommy was diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia - a form of Cerebral Palsy.
