Weʼve raised £1,985 to Preston family in need... Help Jolan keeping his family around while fighting at NICU at Alder Hey to come home one day

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
A close friend's baby boy Jolan was born at week 31 with underdeveloped lungs and a rare condition called chylothorax. Not being able to breath unsupported, facing several infections continiously and having surgeries at this young age, he is fighting death every day. With his parents caring full-time for him at the NICU in Alder Hey, dealing with the up and downs in treatment in hope not to loose their baby boy. However, these circumstances leaves them unable to work at the moment with bills continuing to show up constantly. Studies show that parents of premature and sick babies face crippling extra costs averaging £282 per week. I want to lift that financial burden for my friend, so she and her family can concentrate on Jolan's treatment. Every little support is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Thank you so much to everyone whose generousity helped me to fundraise 2,000.00 GBP to support our dear friends Vanessa and Dean. The money allows them to stay in hospital with their little fighter Jolan and help him during his long journey to a healthy life. Hopefully, they will be able to bring him home in some time. To all of you , all the best for a happy and healthy 2017. x
