    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    My daughter Stacie gave birth to Auraya Louise on 24.11.2015 at Southmead Hospital. She was born healthy but unfortunately contracted a deadly virus which caused a rare condition HLH. Auraya sadly passed away 11 days later. The support and expertise from the NICU team was outstanding. We want to raise money to support this incredible facility and help to provide state of the art equipment so families get precious hours,days,weeks with their sick babies, as stacie and Matt did with Auraya.

    Supporting NICU by giving extra funds will help many more babies survive. Parents and families would suffer less emotional trauma and physically be more relaxed and comfortable during their long and enduring stay by their babies bedside.
    The staff work tirelessly to save tiny lives and put their hearts and souls into giving 110% effort and passion into their work.
    With all the government cuts, these life savers fight a constant battle, not only save lives but to support the families in crisis.

    Unless you are unfortunate to need the brilliance of NICU and the team, you will never get to see where your amazing donations have been spent.
    For those families that use the unit, the life saving machines etc will be in use all around you. 11 days Stacie,Matt and I spent at the unit, and in that time we saw how important these machines and equipment are and that they are in use around the clock, making diagnosis and treatment so much easier and efficient.

    The money will be spent on helping Southmead to buy much needed equipment such as a baby dialysis machine. The nearest one is at the BRI which means babies have to under go a life threatening journey to receive life saving treatment. Auraya needed this as her kidneys were failing. Unfortunately the journey was too much for my tiny granddaughter and she passed away not long after arriving at the Children's Intensive Care at the BRI.
