Fly for the Kids: A Mission for a Children’s Complex Movement Disorders Program 

Have you heard about the ‘Fly for the Kids’ mission?

Neurologist, Associate Professor Andrew Kornberg at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, is on a mission to fundraise for a Complex Movement Disorders Program to support children with Movement Conditions, including Dystonia. It will consist of a variety of health professionals or a multidisciplinary team to provide care, and innovative and intensive therapies, such as Deep Brain Stimulation.  This program is important as it will include a dedicated team of practitioners who understand, support and treat movement disorders.

In March 2017, Professor Andrew Kornberg, will be starting on a quest to fly solo around Australia to raise money to establish the comprehensive program. This will be over a 27 day period and will include visiting RCH patients. 

The following link will direct you to further information and to a video ‘Brooke’s journey’ (one of our groups members) to help everyone understand how important this fundraiser is for children with movement disorders.
