    Weʼve raised £4,470 to help support Issy's recovery

    Funded on Thursday, 9th August 2018

    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 charity.

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


    As some of you now know, on Thursday we received the shocking news that Candice and Rich's beautiful Isabel has suffered a childhood stroke. The stroke has affected the mobility of her body on her right side, while the cognitive side has remained in tact, meaning no serious mental damage. Her strength and mobility is affected as is her speech and she will require speech therapy. Soon she’ll be moved into the children’s Neuro ward where the therapy will eventually begin. They have a long road ahead but remain positive that she’ll recover fully, although it will take a while with lots of physio and any other therapy to work on strengthening her weakness and muscles on her right hand side. Recovery also progresses well when surrounded by positivity, encouragement and love - something I know you will all support them with, not only for Isabel, Rich and Candice but also for Oli. 
    They will keep giving updates as regularly as possible via a FB blog.
    For now I am asking to not only provide much needed emotional support but to also donate any amount, large or small so that they can make sure they have access to as many rehabilitation options as possible.
    There will also be many trips, appointments, parking over the next few months on top of the usual household financial commitments. Please give generously and thank you on behalf of the Dolbys for your support.

      What a superstar she is, standing by herself ( with a support boot) and smiling a big beautiful, full smile. You have helped take the pressure off this family, to allow them to help her recover, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your wonderful donations. I will be closing this page at the end of month, what an incredible amount to close on! Thankyou, each and every one of you, I will do one more update, once we know more about Issy's residential rehab, it is likely to continue for the next few months x

      Wow! What an amazing show of people coming together in a family's time of need. I am leaving it open until the end of August as there are a few people who have asked to still donate. Some fantastic news, Issy is now on the waiting list for The Children's Trust, so please all pray that she moves up the list, as quickly as possible to secure a place at this fantatstic children's rehabilitation unit. In the voice of Strictly, keep sharing!! Ps love this pic, pure happiness, as one of her best friends visits x

      So we visited little Miss Is yesterday and it was so lovely to see her and her mummy and daddy, what a lovely family they are! She is now eating well and managed her first drink in two weeks which is fantastic! Her speech continues to improve and she now attends hospital school in her wheelchair every day ( see below). The main aim now is to try and get her to a rehab centre, as she continues her journey through recovery. Once again thank you so much for the support, the family are so very very grateful.
