    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    On the 12th of November 2016 my daughter who's 5 weeks old was admitted to the children's ward at York District Hospital. She has been very very poorly since.

    On the 12th of November they put a tube down her nose and into her stomach to help feed her as well as continuously monitor her oxygen levels.

    On the 13th of November Mia was still not well but a little better than the previous day. She was still being tube fed as she couldn't feed properly and stugglling with her breathing when feeding. And they were also using sunction down her nose and throat to help her.

    On the 14th of November Mia took a bit of a turn, they had to reduce the amount of milk she has through her tube feed as she's not managing to tolerate it without being sick and now some oxygen to her her oxygen levels as they kept dropping.

    On the 15th of November Mia's test results came back from some swabs what were sent off to leeds. She has rhinovirus and bronchiolitis. So she was currently fighting off 2 viral infections at the same time which will explain why she was so poorly and struggling with her breathing.

    On the 16th of November Mia was still very very poorly so they did a chest xray and some blood tests. It came back that mia also had a chest infection too. So her little body was fighting 3 different infections all at once. And they stared Mia on some antibiotics.

    17th of November we are still currently in hospital. They have taken Mia off the oxygen to see how she goes and she managed to tolerate a small bottle for the first time in days. Hopefully she'll continue to improve but little tiny steps.

    Basically I am trying to raise some money no matter how much the the children's ward as a little thankyou for everything they have done for mia and continue to do for her and myself too. I see how hard they all work day in day out! Whether this money goes towards some new toys for the ward or equipment I'm sure they will be extremely grateful as would I.
