    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

    Rosie Day was two years old when diagnosed with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy. At three she suffered a cardiac arrest, was placed on the urgent transplant list on Christmas Eve 2015 and in a February 2016 was fitted with a mechanical heart.

    The mechanical heart resulted in Rosie having two brain bleeds, both requiring emergency craniotomies, then multiple strokes.

    Thanks to a wonderful, selfless, courageous family, Rosie received a heart transplant in summer 2016. The surgeon said it was a 'perfect transplant operation' and Rosie recovered fantastically well.

    Sadly the multiple strokes have left Rosie with bilateral Dystonia movement disorder and she was admitted to The Children's Trust, Tadworth for four months of intensive neuro rehabilitation.

    Rosie has made good progress but is still unable to sit or stand unaided, to eat or to communicate.

    At The Children's Trust, Rosie has received at least three hours of intensive therapy each day and access to some amazing equipment to help her rehabilitation. At home, the local authority can only offer one joint physio and occupational therapy session per month.

    We want Rosie to continue to improve so are going to do all we can to privately fund additional therapy and specialist equipment.

    We are incredibly grateful for any help in getting Rosie as good as she can be to enable her to enjoy every precious day that the gift of a new heart has given her.

      Thank you all so much for your kind and generous donations. Thanks to you, we have been able to take Rosie to see a private physiotherapist. She is amazing and has lots of equipment we are currently trying. When we know what works best for Rosie, we will be purchasing some of the equipment for home. We are also keen to explore a private Speech and Language therapist for Rosie to help her to communicate. Thank you again, lots of love Rosie xxxx
