Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Mummy and Daddy wanted me to share my life with people who care about me. I was born on the 4th of September 2010 and in the the first four weeks of my life my family and I had a very difficult time waiting to hear my diagnosis. The doctors finally finished scratching their heads about why I am poorly and they have given it a big long name. I have a rare disorder called Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy. It is part of the Zellwegger Sectrum of peroxisomal biogenisis disorders.
Since I was born I have spent over 10 out of my 16 weeks in hospital, the most part with the wonderful team on Ward 17 at Leighton Hospital. I am currently there now,(29/12/10) for the 5th week in a row.
I am dying from this horrid horrid disorder, I dont know when sometimes it feels like only days, but I am so special to my Mummy and Daddy they dont want anyone to forget me.They are so grateful for the kindness and support we are given here that they would like to raise money to supply enough equiment to furnish a room in my honour.
People keep asking how they can help:- So instead of buying me teddies, (I have enough love and cuddles here) and chocolates and cakes for Mummy and Daddy (they need to lose weight), if you want to help, donate that money here instead, whether its 50p or £50 (Thats a nice big box of chocolates by the way, so maybe we can discuss things...hah hah ahha) If you are thinking of doing a charity event, do it for my cause.....all of your support is gratefully recieved.
Here's the official blurb about what will happen to your money.....
