    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On Wednesday 6th September 2017 at 14:00, whilst attending our babies 20 week anomaly scan at Hull Women & Children’s Hospital, we were given the earth shattering news that our unborn child has a fatal condition called Bilateral Renal Agenesis. This is where both kidneys have failed to form and in addition, they do not have a bladder. Because no renal system has developed, the amniotic fluid surrounding our baby has disappeared and will stop our babies lungs from developing and will cause physical deformity known as potters sequence/syndrome. This condition is fatal and will either lead to stillbirth or our baby will pass away shortly after birth. We attend bi-weekly hospital appointments to check if baby is still with us. We plan to donate any viable organs upon our babies death to hopefully save another family from a similar heartache. We are looking to start a charity project in her memory to help families like ours, who decide to carry to term, despite a fatal diagnosis. We hope to create precious and long lasting memories of their special angels and we plan to call it - Ava’s Butterfly Baby Pathway. The project will include giving these families a memories pack, including a journal to capture and treasure every precious moment shared with baby, a copy of the book A Gift Of Time, a storybook to read to your baby whilst you are carrying them, plus many more ways to capture every moment. In addition to this we would also like to fund 4D scans for the families and if needed help fund gender blood tests. Our mission is to raise awareness of fatal fetal conditions, such as Potters Sequence and improve the support given to familes who are grieving for their baby before and after birth. Many sources offer support to families whose baby has already passed away and not before. Please help us prepare for her arrival and to say goodbye in a way that mirrors just how special and loved she truly is to all our family and friends.

    Our unborn baby Ava has a condition that is not compatible with life and will die shortly before or after birth. We are looking for help to make her funeral as special and perfect as she is to us and also, to start a charity project called Ava’s Butterfly Baby Pathway.
