Kia ora neighbours, a Parakai toddler who loves to dance may soon be unable to walk or stand if medicine for her rare condition stays unfunded.

Two-year-old Zoey Butcher was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy type 3 (SMA) in March and her mum, Chauntel Wedlake, said the treatments available were unfunded in Aotearoa and cost more than $400,000 a year.
