Three-year-old Jada Ifill was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth.
The disorder has affected her muscle tone, movement and motor skills (the ability to move in a coordinated way).
Local doctors reported that no medical procedure could improve Jada's condition, her mother Karen Stoute said. But she is not satisfied.
Stoute, of San Fernando, is on a drive to raise $130,000 to travel to Mexico for medical treatment.
Little Jada will undergo stem cell treatment to rebuild her weakened immune system.
The procedure will be performed at the Integra Medical Centre, Nuevo Progreso, Mexico, and her family is seeking the public's assistance in raising funds for the treatment.
"We need to do some tests at a private medical facility in Trinidad and then we will be able to travel for the procedure. The cost covers the local medical costs, travel expenses and the procedure," Stoute, 31, said.
Jada is her only child.
"I cannot sit back and watch my daughter like this for the rest of her life. I have to do something," she said.
A medical report from the Southwest Regional Health Authority (SWRHA) stated that Jada was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, seizure disorder and global developmental delay at birth.
She remained at the San Fernando General Hospital's neonatal unit for ten days after birth because of the complications.
The medical report stated that Jada was seen regularly at the hospital's premature out-patient clinic to observe her development. "Throughout this time, she was found to have global developmental delay with evolving cerebral palsy," it stated.
SWRHA stated that since Jada's discharge from the neonatal unit, she was admitted to the paediatric medical ward on several occasions for viral illnesses and occasional seizures.
Stoute said her daughter was on medication and visited doctors regularly. "I need to try something for my child. I went online and studied this disorder and I know we can do something to improve my daughter's life," she said.
"We will be grateful for any assistance we can get. My daughter needs your help," she said.
