Story

Liv's 35 and has lived her life with a rare genetic condition called Ehler's Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Since her diagnosis in 2014 her health has become progressively worse. In 2016 she was also diagnosed with Craniocervical Instability (CCI), her vertebrae are moving out of place, causing life threatening spinal cord compression.

Liv now spends all of her time in a spinal neck brace, she is bedbound and unable to move unaided. She has regular seizures as a result of the Craniocervical Instability (CCI) and she now needs urgent life-saving spinal surgery. This specialist surgery is only available in the USA and Spain and we need £100,000 to fund both the operation and a medical team in an Air Ambulance to fly her to Barcelona for the surgery.

    Thanks to some off-line donations from the weekend we've been able to reduce Liv's target on JustGiving by another £2000 to £76,000 leaving just over £2000 to raise by Friday to ensure everything goes ahead as planned. We're nearly there thanks to you, please keep sharing.

    What an amazing weekend! So much going on it's impossible to thank everyone without missing something. Two big announcements, first the JustGiving fundraising passed the £50,000 mark overnight which is brilliant. All of the events over the weekend from cake stalls, to sponsored cycles, zip wires, half marathons along with some very generous individual donations mean that we are now able to reduce the JustGiving Total needed by another £12,000 (down to £78,000). We really can do this and Liv & Gary are just delighted with the reponse.

    Thanks to the amazing generosity of one or two people who wish to remain anonymous we have received a donation of £10,000 over the weekend! We are over the moon and it's raised a smile after a really tough weekend for Liv. As the donation has gone straight to the Life for Liv Trust account we've reduced the target on the JustGiving Campaign from £100,000 to £90,000.
