Here is Rosie-May's story.... November 5th 2017 started out as any normal Sunday, we were all happy and excited to be spending an evening with friends enjoying hot dogs whilst watching the fireworks. When in a flash ALL our lives were changed, the laughter and happiness of the children instantly became fear, as parents this became the worst day of our lives.
My little 4 year old Rosie-May got hit by a firework that had gone astray, the fear on her face and the other children will stay with me forever. We acted quickly to get her clothes off her and led her in a bath of water until paramedics arrived. We were promptly taken to hospital where we were told we had to be sent Morriston hospital in Swansea.
Here the consultants,surgeons and nurses took over and made our little princess their 100% priority. She endured 5 weeks in hospital, having to have many baths to clean the burns, a surgical scrub and a skin graft of which was taken from her scalp. This meant her beautiful blond hair had to be shaved. We then had many weeks of weekly visits back to swansea for dressing changes.
Nearly a year on... after many counselling sessions and reassuring talks her scar on her neck everyday reminds us of that horrific night. Rosie-May has amazed us every single day of how brave,strong she has been, not just for herself but for others who were with us that night. With the anniversary of her accident and National Burns awareness day approaching, we as a family would like to raise funds for the Children's Burns Trust (CBT)- they not only provide support for all burns victims but also for their families.
Without the amazing support of them I would have been totally lost, with the run up to christmas they sent us a grant to help cover the costs of fuel back and forth for my husband, food for us both and hotel stays . This tiny gesture on top of christmas allowed us to ensure our children could have a magical christmas.
Please help us raise awareness and funds for other families that need the support when they most need it. Any amount greatly appreciate .
Thank you for donating and for taking the time to read.
