Donna Story on Youtube

In 2017 Donna 47 from Leeds was diagnosed with a potentially deadly infection necrotising fasciitis ( commonly known as a flesh eating disease ) that results in the death of the bodies tissue. Doctors battled to beat the bacteria as it fed on her flesh but sadly they had to remove a large proportion of her face to save her life.

Donna has undertaken numerous extensive life saving operations to remove the bacteria. Following this Donna has undertaken numerous reconstructive operations to rebuild the area of damage, including a skin grafting her form her thigh.

Now eager to raise away of the signs and symptoms of NF Donna is looking to the future, with support for treatments that are not available on the NHS we can help Donna on her facial rejuvenation journey .....

Despite Donna's new appearance she remains resolutely positive " Im alive "" in Donnas words.The donations will go directly to Donnas fund, the donations will help fund any treatments required to improve her disfigurement.

A Word form Donna :

I would like to thank all the staff at Leeds general Infirmary who saved my life , thank you for all the support you have given me over the last year. I will continue to raise awareness and funds for the department

Donna is starting with the second part of her journey to improve scarring and facial rejuvenation, this will include non surgical cosmetic treatments. Donnas second part of her journey started with a referral from True You Skin Clinics in Leeds, reaching out to Dr Patrick Tracey who has offered his expert services. Donna flew out to Ireland last month to start her second journey. She continues to attend True You Skin Clinics for her weekly Light Therapy donated by the Team.

All donations will go towards advanced treatments to help donna along this journey.
