raised of £450 target by 49 supporters

    Weʼve raised £941 to Charlie has a heart defect and has had multiple surgeries. We need to find him a special bed to Keep him safe but unable to get funding

    Funded on Saturday, 3rd April 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    At Charlie‘s 20 week scan they found a hole in his hear and he was diagnosed with AVSD, as well as t21. Charlie has been in and out of hospital since he was 2 months old. At 3 months old, he had increased difficulty in breathing and he required a heart repair. Once in Bristol hospital, he went under a complete repair of his AVSD. Unfortunately, they were unable to repair it fully and required a further operation. After a week in PICU, he wasnt showing any improvement, so they performed the second operation giving him a mechanical valve and a permanent pacemaker. After a month later, Charlie then became ill againa and was rushed to hospital, where they found a blood clot. Whilst undergoing Thrombolysis, Charlie had 3 cardiac arrests. This process then had to happen again in 2019, but on the last ocassion he produced a line infection which he would need 6 weeks of antibiotics. For this to be done hee needed a hickman line but unfortunately after 3 weeks this snapped. They tried to repair the line but this did not work. We agreed to have to pacemaker moved so he could have a Gastostromy fitted. After one night, Charlie became unwell and they investigated to discover he had internal bleeding where they had moved his pacemaker. Charlie now needs a special bed to help keep him safe and we would love to be able to raise £450 to help him get that

      We have reached 100% of the original target. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Robert, Charlie’s dad, called the bed business with the great news, but unfortunately they have folded as a business, so we need to increase the target to £800! We are very nearly there, please help Charlie ❤️
