    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Baby Lilly is nearly 2 years old but was born with a rare form of epilepsy and is unable to develop in the same way as other children her age and still relies on her parents for 24/7 care. Unlike most 2 year old children she still cannot even sit upright on her own or grip anything and requires constant care. Due to this fact and Lilly's size It has become difficult to manouvre Lilly around the house and in particular up and down the stairs so my sister, Lilly's mum, requires help with funding to have some adaptions made to their home to assist them with Lilly's care.

    Lilly has spent most of her life in and out of hospital as she also has severe breathing and liver problems and very often has to be resuscitated.

    Lilly's dad works really hard but only just earns enough to pay the bills and my sister is the only one who can look after Lilly due to the amount of medication she has and the way in which it has to be administered and the same with her feeds as she is unable to be bottle fed and has to be fed through a tube, so she rarely has a break.

    Lilly is a full time job so we are asking for donations for equipment for adaptations to be made to their home to support Lilly's care, so please give what you can as every little will help, and will be much appreciated, and I would like to thank everyone who donates from the bottom of my heart.
