Story

My name is Chrissie & and I currently teaching in China. One of my students, Phoebe, a bright & vivacious three year old, was admitted to hospital with severe pneumonia. Her condition has rapidly deteriorated to the extent that ECMO is urgently needed to save her life. The cost of this will runs into many thousands of pounds, and time is of the essence. The cost of medical care in China is extremely high, and whilst there is help from the state & private insurance available, the cost of this emergency care on top of the costs already paid by the parents is a terrible burden they are struggling to cope with.

That is why Will & I have joined forces to try and help - we are teaming up with fundraisers in China to help contribute with JustGiving donations.

Please help give Phoebe the chance to fight for her life & for her parents to support her without worrying about finances.

    Phoebe is still being kept under sedation, and today will have checks on her heart & lung function. There is also concern about bleeding in her chest cavity, too.

    Good news: Phoebe finally has access to an ECMO & the doctors say this has bought her a little more time to 'ride out' the illness, although there is still no change in her condition and the doctors will not give a prognosis. She is still in isolation and in an enforced coma, and her parents still cannot be closer than looking through a window at her. Please keep Phoebe in your prayers, and please continue to support this fundraiser to help towards the cost of her ongoing fight for life.

    I have spoken to Phoebe's mum in the last hour. Phoebe's condition has deteriorated. She is now in an isolation room in ICU. Her parents can only look at her through this small window for 20 minutes a day. They cannot be with her when she needs them, I can't even begin to imagine what that feels like. The doctors say they have done everything they can do, it's now down to Phoebe's fighting strength. Please keep the support going, no matter the outcome of this the bills still need to be paid. Please share the link, everything helps. xxx
