Weʼve raised £262 to help fund a shortfall for adaptations to our home to accommodate our 3 year old daughter Tianna who suffers daily from epileptic seizures.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Tianna is our beautiful 3 year old little girl & she was born full term & healthy. At 3-4months of age she started having severe epileptic seizures & over the past 3 years she has been on various medications, unfortunately they haven't been successful in controlling her seizures & she has had multiple episodes on a daily basis ever since. Also over that time her development and abilities have regressed, she is now fed via a gastrostomy, is unable to walk, talk, laugh, smile and she is totally dependant on her family for all her care & needs. Tianna is getting bigger day-by-day, so much so it is becoming difficult to take her upstairs, as a result we have been awarded a DFG (disabled facilities grant) for adaptations to be made to the ground floor of our family home & we have secured additional funding on top of the DFG but still have a shortfall of £6000. We have paid the architects fees and have put the build out to tender and have a builder ready to start the work but he cannot do so until the shortfall is fulfilled. That is what we are hoping to achieve on our Just Giving page, even if you are not in a position to give yourself please share with family and friends and work colleagues. Thank you so much for reading our page it is very much appreciated by ourselves and Tianna x

Many, many thanks for your kind and generous donations. On top of what you helped us raise we were also been granted monies from a couple of organisations that we had applied to & the shortfall for adaptations has now been fulfilled and we are about £1000 short for the hoist that was also included in the original shortfall, we have informed the builder of this & work has now begun today 5th December :) We hope the builder can get as much done as possible before the festive holidays. Merry Christmas & best wishes to each & everyone of you. X

I know Tianna & her mom from baby group and our Chinese friend here at Stowmarket. She is the same age as my boy. Hope this little amount can help you to support her back home.
