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.
Thank you for being part of our special day and for taking the time to visit our Just Giving page in aid of a very special girl.
Please read Mia’s story below and make a donation if you can.
Thank you from James and Rachel xxx
In October 2016, 11 year old Mia was taken to hospital with stomach pains and weakness in her legs. A scan revealed a mass on her spine and within hours Mia was transferred to Manchester Children’s Hospital and underwent surgery to remove the mass. Unfortunately surgery revealed that the mass was in fact one of five cancerous tumours, two in her brain and three on her spine.
Surgeons worked for 9 hours to remove part of the largest tumour, however it wasn’t until Mia woke up that they leant the full extent of Mia’s condition. Mia lost the use of both of her legs and feet, bladder and bowels, a devastating diagnosis for Mia, her friends and family.
Mia is such a strong individual and will not give up without a fight. In less than a year she has beaten cancer!!!!!!!
Now that she is “better” people think she is fine, however the unfortunate reality is that she is not. Mia still has to try and adapt to her new life in a wheelchair. Unfortunately with such a life changing disability comes cost. Mia and her family need to move house as their current home is not suitable. Mia currently has to sleep in the living room meaning no privacy, she has to have bed baths as their bathroom is upstairs. Mia is also going to need specialist equipment and care, potentially for the rest of her life.
Hopefully we can raise enough money to help with essential house modifications to their future home.
Thank you on behalf of Mia xxx
