What is crowdfunding?

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

Story

Tiegan was born at 27 weeks gestation - 13 weeks / 3 months early! As a result of being born so prematurely, she ended up with Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL).
When we were initially told Tiegan had a brain injury, we were advised to prepare ourselves that she would be in a vegetative state. Thankfully with lots of perseverance and determination, that is not the case.
However, Tiegan does have cerebral palsy affecting her lower limbs. This means, at 2 years old, she is unable to sit herself up, crawl, stand or walk.
We have found a fantastic physiotherapy service locally, and Tiegan has attended one 3-week session with amazing results. Unfortunately, we do not have the funds to sustain her attendance.

    Thank you all so so much for your donations! We have totally smashed the target and Tiegan is booked in for a 3 week session at the end of January! The physio will be ongoing so the excess of our target will be put towards the next session!

    To show what an improvement the physio makes to Tiegan: The photo on the right is before physio. Tiegan can sit but is totally reliant on her hands for support. The photo on the left is after physio. Tiegan is able to sit and is not so reliant on her hands meaning she can sit on the floor and play with her toys.
