Story

Jessica was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy Limb Girdle 2D back in Nov 2016. It came as a huge shock to all of us, Jess is a bright funny outgoing little girl with hopes of becoming a Vet one day. She decided if she can't be fixed as there's no treatment or a cure yet then she wants to be able to help fix sick animals.
LGMD is a muscle wasting condition which will leave Jessica dependant on a Wheelchair, help from others and may affect her heart & lungs. Jess today has help with getting dressed, bathing and getting around on days that she is so fatigued her little legs won't carry her anymore.
We want Jess to have as much Independance for as long as possible and with physical activities on land becoming so difficult to achieve Jess has found swimming her only outlet to feel normal and move freely. This is a fantastic way to keep her heart and lungs going and with very few hydropools it's difficult to get to one. So with the help of family & friends new and old! we thought we'd grant Jessica's Wish of having one for her very own. So please whatever you can spare we'd appreciate it. Or if you'd like to fundraise too then pop it on here it all adds up!
Together we are strong let's grant one little girls wish to keep her going for as long as we can. Huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts 💞
