Weʼre raising £2,000 to Grant the wishes of terminally ill children and children with life limiting conditions
- Gosport, Hampshire
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My Daughter Amelia-Lilly is now 2 and a half years old but unfortunately due to a lot of health and mobility problems, she wont live to see her 18th birthday but as to how long we have with her nobody knows. As a family going through it we know first hand just how hard life can be at times and we know that we need to make the most of every precious moment with her. As you can see from the picture Amelia has such a contagious smile, sadly Amelia cannot do much developmentally but it is her smile that makes everything worth while.
A lot of families struggle to understand what day to day life is like for families like ours and it is the simplest of things that people take for granted that families like ours struggle with for example not being able to crawl, sit, walk, talk or communicate. Spending weeks at a time in hospital. Not being able to participate in fun activities like swimming and having to be extra cautious on where they go through fear of the risk of infection. It literally does change your life forever.
At Amelia's Magical Smiles we want to be able to grant terminally ill children and their families with a wish that will help take the stresses away from day to day life. This could be a specialist bit of equipment to make day to day life easier or even a holiday to escape day to day life and make those precious memories as a family. We want to spread Amelia's smile to other children and Families and give them something to smile about during such a difficult time.
