    What is crowdfunding?

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


    Paige was a healthy normal 4 year old little girl when she became a little under the weather. On 18th September she developed a temperature and was off her food, no cause for alarm just thought she had a little bug. Monday 19th she was having headaches, again I thought it was a bug. However on Tuesday 20th she began falling down anytime she tried 2 stand, that's when I decided 2 take her 2 the doctor. She got referred to St. John's hospital and was kept in. They told me she had a urine infection although she never had tummy pain or pain when passing urine. Still she couldn't stand or walk. The Wednesday her left arm stopped working fully and she couldn't keep herself sitting up just kept falling over. The Thursday she came to Sick Kids hospital for an MRI scan, and was kept in. We got told on the Friday 22nd that Paige had got the Enterovirus d68 virus and AFM. This meant the virus had attacked her spinal cord and nervous system. My baby couldn't stand, walk, sit unaided or use her left arm. 5weeks in hospital and she still can't stand, walk, can sit unaided for short periods but gets tired easily, her upper left arm is still not working either. Doctors can't tell me if she will improve or if she does how much she'll make. It is all a waiting game as they do not have a clue what their dealing with.
    Paige deserves a special weekend. one to always remember

      Wee update on Paige. She has had the cast done for the back brace which she will get in 4 weeks. She is doing amazing at home, still can't walk unaided or for long periods, gets tired very easily. But as usual she just gets on with it. I have booked and paid deposit for Disneyland Paris and we have had our quote for the wet room and ramp, so hopefully will happen very soon.

      Paige is doing good, using a supportive walker to take some steps at physio. No longer got her NG feeding tube in but not sure if this is permanent or not yet only time will tell

      Paige gets her special splints tomorrow, hopefully this will help her ankles and make the muscles stronger. The doctors have said they hope Paige can get out on pass at Christmas for the weekend. So that is our aim. Think time at home would be fantastic for her as she is becoming down more and more

    I have set up this page up to raise money for my daughter. I would love to give her a trip to Disneyland Paris, after all she's been through. Also for extra physio and hydrotherapy sessions once she's home to help her recovery and for necessary house adaptions to help her
