Story

Myself, Beth, Kayleigh, Georgia and Charlotte will be taking part in the London Colour Run on 8th July in contribution to the fantastic fundraising that's already been done for Lizzi's future. We want to ensure that she has every opportunity available to her and that means raising as many funds as possible! Please read her story below:

'"Lizzi Jordan, a previously happy, healthy and fit 20 year old suddenly fell poorly with E. Coli 055 in September 2017. Lizzi is a passionate horse lover, rider and University student. The E. Coli then caused a serious, rare blood disorder called Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS). HUS then caused multi-organ failure including her heart, kidneys and entire respiratory tract. She was in a coma for over 8 weeks in a variety of top London hospitals, and her length of hospitalization was over 3 months. Lizzi is now awake and medically improving, however the HUS has left her with an awful side effect and she awoke from her coma completely blind. She has suspected optic nerve atrophy which currently there is no treatment for in the UK. There is a place in Berlin called 'The Centre of Vision Restoration' which carry out treatment using electrical impulses to try help the optic nerve deliver signals to the brain and we are desperately trying to get Lizzi there to try allow some improvement in her vision. We are trying to do some fundraising so when the time is right finances will not hold us back, allow us to buy environment adaptation equipment (voice assistants, changes in the home etc.) and day to day things/activities to improve her quality of life.

You may have seen a viral video on social media platforms of a horse visiting a hospital - which was to her! :) The support we had from the viewings of the video were incredible and we hope this can further role over to getting Lizzi to Berlin.

We are running numerous fund raising events alongside this JustGiving page, such as a charity ball, auction, local horse competition, raffle and possibly more to be confirmed. Please hold on and keep your eyes peeled if either of these sound appealing for you to get involved with!

I don't think any of us can even begin to comprehend what Lizzi is going through, loosing her vision at just 20 years old after such an ordeal. She is understandably incredibly depressed but lets show her just how many people far and wide are behind her.

If in the event funds were raised surplus to requirements, excess money will be donated directly to The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) as they are an incredible charity.

Thank you everyone for all the love and support, we are eternally grateful.'
