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.
Lena Eastment will be doing a skydive on the 17th August to support Gia Cannon in raising money for her daughter (Sienna Maiden-Cannon's) continued treatment. We want to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic cause; please read below to hear more about where this money will be going.
Just five years ago, Sienna was unable to walk. But now, thanks to the help of a unique piece of equipment, Gia's 11-year-old daughter is building up her strength to take her first steps on her own .
Gia has long been fundraising to help Sienna get the continued therapy she needs to help her find her feet but need's some help.
Sienna was born with global physical and mental development delay, which means she is unable to talk and has difficulty in her everyday life.
Doctors told her she would never be able to walk – but thanks to a lot of fundraising, in 2013 Sienna was able to visit Footsteps in Oxford for therapy and this helped Sienna take her first aided steps after using the life changing equipment called 'The Spider'.
The Spider along with intense physio uses pioneering therapy, developed in Poland, which has shown marked results in children with challenging development-related conditions.
The Spider is a series of elastic ropes which creates a 'spider's web' holding Sienna in a perfect postural position in which to exercise. The Spider is set up so that therapy is especially tailored to Sienna's needs and even enables her to go on a treadmill which would otherwise not be possible.
The Spider gives Sienna a unique experience of moving and balancing in crawling, kneeling, one-legged kneeling and standing positions, whilst concentrating on creating essential movements such as supporting, reaching, grasping and holding.
Sienna's past treatments have made it possible for her to build up so much strength, understanding and determination that she is now able to walk aided. This has given Sienna the freedom and independence that she strives for which is amazing.
This treatment has been life changing for Sienna and now more than ever this treatment needs to continue which is where you come in.
If you are able to donate please do, Gia literally cant do it without you.
