    Story

    Our beautiful 10 year old daughter Maisie was diagnosed with a brain tumour in January 2016 - in February she underwent surgery at Addenbrookes to remove as much of the tumour as possible, 80% was successfully removed. Unfortunately following her surgery her little body gave in and she developed a collapsed lung which meant she was admitted to PICU and put into a coma to allow her body time to heal. It was almost as if her body shut down completely and did only what was needed to stay alive which sadly did not involve moving. She then underwent a further operation for a tracheostomy to let her lungs recover. When Maisie came round sadly, she was unable to move her body and following some tests it showed that there were no signals from her brain to her limbs, however, over the last few months it's almost as if someone has pressed a reset button......she is slowly but gradually regaining the use of her body but this is not only going to take time but also some serious rehabilition and intense physiotherapy. Since the beginning of our journey we have discovered that the cost of any specialist equipment is astronomical but we don't want her rehabilitation to suffer, hence setting up this page. We are still in Addenbrookes, Maisie's strength, determination and smile keep us going every day. We are heading towards a home discharge later this year and want to make sure we have everything in place for when we finally go home. We would be truly grateful of whatever we can raise towards buying the equipment she needs to help with her recovery and to get her back on her feet again!!! Thank you for your donation whatever the amount, from the honorary members of Team Awesome!!!

    We have recently received the news that there has been regrowth with Maisie tumour and she is now going to have to undergo 6 weeks of radiotherapy to blast 'bob'

      So....appeared in national press this week to help raise awareness and local press to help raise more money for Maisie's rehab - our overall total is £9,958 - so close to reaching £10,000!!!!! It was a devastating blow when we found out that 'bob' had grown and now requires more treatment with 6 weeks of intense radiotherapy 5 days a week. This will take its toll on Maisie and we need to try to keep her spirits as high as possible whatever that takes. Thank you all for your continued support during this xxx💖

      And still the total just keeps on getting bigger....£9798 (inc the anon donation) would be great if we could get to £10,000 before Maisie comes home early September. Thank you to everyone not only for your donations but for your continued support! 💖💖

      So today we received an amazing donation of £3,100 - yes, you did read this correctly!!!! The amazing donator wishes to remain anonymous and we respect their wishes but an ENORMOUS Team Awesome thank you!! We have decided not to add this amount to the crowdfunding page to avoid the charges at the end but the money will obviously still go into the same account. This brings out total to an unbelievable £9,718 and this sum is still rising 🤗 Thank you again to everyone who has donated whatever the amount, we are truly grateful xx
