Erin’s Treatment Fun
This is Erin, our 6 year old daughter, who was diagnosed with a large ASD - a hole in her heart. Due to its location, what was thought initially to be a very simple procedure has turned into something far more complex! The hole covers the majority of the delivery chambers in Erin’s heart which has meant numerous appointments and visits up and down the country to get the specialist advice and treatment she requires.
Currently Erin is in the care of Alder Hay Children’s Hospital in Liverpool as her condition has deteriorated substantially over the last 6 months. She is restless and bed ridden most days with the only highlight being an occasional cruise around the hospital in her electric car. Specialist surgery is scheduled during February but unfortunately this is all not available on the NHS.
The pressure on my wife and I has been immense; juggling trying to keep a normal routine of school and commitments for our other 3 children while bearing the strain, both financially and emotionally of getting the best treatment for Erin.
After numerous attempts trying to raise sufficient funds for Erin’s specialist treatment I didn’t know what to do other than to raise my hands and ask for some help (not something I do easily).
Thank you to everyone for their continued support and help to keep us and Erin strong through this.
