Everyone has a list of dreams to achieve: maybe it’s a bucket list of things you want to do or a dream job you’re working towards. And that doesn’t change when you have a disability as Becky and Hannah are proving.
Becky is a 23 year old children’s nurse and her 25 year old sister Hannah was born with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is caused by babies not receiving enough oxygen at birth and the disease varies in severity. In Hannah’s case, she cannot walk or talk but is completely aware of her surroundings and is intent on living life to the fullest!
Becky often answers questions about Hannah’s condition on TikTok as they believe in having open and honest discussions about disabilities to open up the conversation, inspire and spread awareness of cerebral palsy. Together, this inspiring pair are @cheethamswithdreams.
Hannah can say a few words...take a look below for her favourite phrase!
Becky also explains how her care works and who looks after her and they believe that being with family and those that love Hannah the most works best.
Hannah and Becky are two of the many diverse TikTok-kers who have received support from the $70 million European TikTok Creator Fund, an initiative launched to nurture TikTok talent and help innovative creators turn their passions or inspiring message - like Hannah and Becky - into careers on the platform. From Tuesday 1 September, TikTok creators will be able to apply for funding through the app providing they meet initial criteria.
Hannah is more adventurous than most of us! She’s a total adrenaline junkie and loves a rollercoaster. She’s even been parasailing whilst on holiday - definitely not one for those who have vertigo!
The sisters also love taking part in a TikTok challenge, take a look at their shoe transition challenge!
Hannah isn’t always a fan of Becky’s challenge attempts though…
