    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

    Demi started on a low today with a temperature of 39.3. Spiking again a couple of hours later.

    Since then Demi has done amazing. Her drain tube got removed this afternoon and soon after Demi got taken off her IV pain control and just on oral paracetamol and ibuprofen.

    There is NOTHING stopping Demi today. What started with a walk down the ward has finished with feeding herself, running, playing ball, riding on a ride on toy!

    She is adapting so well it is amazing how positive she is. Demi just gets on with things and is always finding new ways to do all the things she used to do with two arms.

    We now are expected to be in until Monday to make sure all is ok and to find out what's causing these temperatures to ensure its nothing related to the surgery.

    Thanks for all your support! We are so grateful for your understanding and kindness.

    As it stands we aren't sure of what Demi's needs will be once she is healed but we know any money raised will be used to help Demi lead a life as normal as possible, wether it will be towards a prosthetic arm or an adapted bike for her to ride.

    Thanks to Anita for the amazing Dig deep for Demi bands they are amazing! Such a thoughtful thing to do, you are an inspiration to us all!

    If anyone would like a band they are available from the village tavern, Forge Fach and Clydach carpet shop if you are need help finding some Chantelle Davies can pass you in the right direction.

    💕 Dig deep for Demi 💕
