Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help raise funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Rosie in Cambridge for premature and poorly babies who need the Care to survive
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Myself Starr and Billie Jo (babies mother) and our family are currently starting fundrasing to raise money for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Cambridge .
At Billie Jos first 12 week scan she was told her baby had fluid on the neck and stomach .. they originally thought it would be downsyndrome or a genetic chromosome problem or a disease causing the fluid . From this Billie Jo was transferred to Adenrookes for the care of her unborn child ... the more scans she had the more she was told fluid was building , the Drs didn't understand what was causing the fluid as they already gave Billie Jo an Amneocentesis to test the amniotic fluid from her womb , evrrything came back clear fortunately and all of babies organs where working fine, But still the hospital didn't know the reason for the fluid increase in the babies stomach And offered her an abortion as they were afraid the baby would not survive , she declined .
Billie Jo was told the baby wouldn't make 20 weeks gestation but she did ... we found out she was a girl .. she was having regular weekly scans and check up at adenbrookes hospital .
At just 30 weeks pregnant , Billie Jos waters broke and she went into labour , she was given medication to slow down the labour and transferred to adenbrookes hospital under a proffesor dealing with The case , Billie Jo was told that she needed a C Section - and that her baby girl would not be born alive , they told her they would drain the fluid from the baby's stomach through the incision Made during the surgery to remove her .
They done so and my beautiful niece was born .. ALIVE !! She was helped with breathing and had drains attached to her to help get rid of the fluid she Angel is on morphine to help with the pain she may be in , No dr in the hospital has ever heard or dealt with a baby with this "condition" they were all in lingo with what to do but where happy with Baby Angels progress . She has lumps where the fluid was being stored , No one knows why or how they got there , so after a week in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit she was transferred to Great Ormand street hospital where she is under going more drainage of fluid from her stomach and laser treatment to see if it can disperse the lumps .. if this fails they will operate but Angel has a long road to recovery . She will eventually be transferred back to Adenbrookes Neonatal unit , Drs still don't no what this is and have taken pictures of Angels swollen stomach etc for medical research . The outcome of all of this is still a mystery to everyone.
Please if you can help us raise some money for these incredible units and wards which help babies who are premature and poorly we would be extremely grateful and so would the hospital and parents of others born prematurely or unwell
