Daisey-May was born 30.10.18 healthy and perfect weighing 5lb6. She’s our third baby and our first girl and we were besotted from the get go.
Sadly at 25 hours old Daisey-May started showing symptoms of group b strep, which soon turned into meningitis, sepsis and she starting having seizures where she stopped breathing. She was quickly intubated, a million wires placed on and lots of drugs and fluids started.
Her infection was at such a high fast moving pace she was transferred to another hospital an hour from our home town to continue her treatment there.
Fast forward to her MRI scan and it has shown she has suffered a severe brain injury and she continues to suffer from epilepsy, now being on 3 medications to control her seizures.
We finally got to bring our baby girl home on the 25th November, after learning how to tube feed our daughter.
We are raising money for her to be able to attend a treatment centre named Snowdrop that specialise in brain injuries, cerebral palsy and autism. This treatment can drastically change Daiseys life and she is booked in to be seen February 1st.
Any money we raise over the amount we need for her assessment and treatments we will donate to the group b strep charity.
7.5% of all donations to Tree of Hope in relation to this appeal will be allocated to the general charitable purposes of Tree of Hope to cover our core operating costs.
If we raise insufficient funds, or surplus funds, then the funds will be used, if appropriate, to fund support for our child’s needs in accordance with Tree of Hope’s charitable objects. If in those circumstances we are unable to use all or part of the funds for the benefit of our child in accordance with Tree of Hope’s charitable objectives, then any funds that cannot be used will be transferred to be used for the general charitable purposes of Tree of Hope.
