Shea's story

Shea was born prematurely and diagnosed with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy after birth.

As a wheelchair user, Shea wanted to play sports just like any other young lad.

South London Special league is a wheelchair football club funded by BBC Children in Need.  Shea, 17, says: “I can now talk about the goals I’ve scored at school with the other boys. That’s special you know. When you’ve not been able to do that before… I was only able to dream it.” 

Following a shock diagnosis of cancer last year, the team also rallied around and supported Shea through this time. He’s now in remission.
