Thank you for helping us to care for Nancie

THE family of a toddler diagnosed with a rare muscle disease have thanked the community for rallying around.
Nancie Seaber was born a healthy 7lbs 6.5oz at Colchester General Hospital in June 2009.
But early last year, her parents Philip and Gemma began to notice Nancie was struggling to sit up and crawl around their home in Talisman Walk, Tiptree.
Although friends and medical experts told them babies developed at different speeds, Gemma said her “mother’s instinct” told her something was wrong.
Eventually, she was referred to a neurologist in Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, where Nancie was diagnosed with type 2 Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which affects one in 6,000 babies.
