Daisys big build

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Daisy is a beautiful 5 year old girl from Ditton in Kent with a very complex background.  At 3 months old she was taken to hospital as she was struggling to feed.  She stayed in our local hospital for 3 weeks before being transferred to the Royal Brompton where it was established she had a multi system disorder that was causing breathing, feeding and movement difficulties.  Fast forward 9 months in the hospital Daisy had 2 major surgeries - a peg for her feed and a tracheostomy.  She is dependant on a ventilator 24/7.  It wasn’t until 2020 that a diagnosis for some of her issues was discovered, a super rare channelopathy called KCNA1 which causes severe epilepsy, breathing and movement issues.  

Daisy has come on leaps and bounds but is very limited by her disabilities when it comes to moving around and for us as a family it is like a military operation having a day out!  She is so determined to join in with her peers and loves being outdoors.

We are looking at having a downstairs bedroom and wet room installed in our family home to allow her the independence she craves.  This means that even when she’s poorly she can be with her family downstairs. 

We have the backing of our fantastic OT and council funding approved by TMBC but the build costs far exceed the DFG (Disabled Facilities Grant). 

Every penny will be greatly received, any idea for fun days, challenges etc also! 

Thank you for reading our story
