Don't have time to donate right now?


Ella Jane was born in February 2021 to arents Danny and Siobahn.

She has three very proud older brothers, Aaron, Joe and Tom.

Ella was born at St Mary's Hospital in Manchester

The stress on the family is immense, they have managed so well with support from family and friends, but the situation has put massive financial pressure on them and we want to fundraise to help to ease this pressure in the coming months and years to come.

No amount or gift is too small.

The money raised will contribute to the extra costs staying at the hospital has, along with the travel costs. 

They have a difficult, long road ahead but  Baby Ella has already shown us what a real fighter she is 

Ella was born needing open heart surgery, but after birth was seriously ill in NICU (newborn intensive care unit), getting constant life threatening infections. 

Ella has been diagnosed with Charge Syndrome which will affect her in many ways, some of which won't become apparent until she is older, she will probably need care and support all her life

Other diagnoses include SCID and Complete di-George Syndrome. This basically means Ella has no immune system and is unable to fight even the smallest infection.

As of April 2022 Ella is 1 year old, weighs 13lb and has been in hospital all her life.

Recent treatments included a rare thymus gland transplant at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London which was a success and Ella is now back at Manchester Children's Hospital to recover and then have tests to check the transplant has been successful.

In December 2021 Ella had open heart surgery at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool. Unfortunately Ella had a cardiac arrest due to sepsis and NEC infections. She is improving slowly which is great, our princess is tube fed and has been intubated and extubated more times than we can count.
