Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My Name is Nikki Christou, I am 11 years old and I have an AVM on my face  which means that I go to hospital, to have lots of operations and have lots of bleeds from my teeth, nose and mouth, and lots of veins on my face. I want to raise lots of money for the Butterfly Charity so that the Researchers at Great Ormond Street and The UCL can find a cure or more definitive treatments  and make me and lots of other people better . I miss out on lots of fun with my friends as I cannot go out much and it makes me sad. My daddy says im his beautiful little Princess but I just want to be a normal little girl with no pain. Please help me by giving money to our charity and help all the people get better and have lots of sunny days.

Thank you . Keep on Smiling :)

It is our great pleasure to announce that The Butterfly AVM Charity as part of their commitment to future AVM Research have agreed to award a three year grant to Great Ormond Street & The University College London for AVM Research . This could not have been achieved without the efforts of many special people . Thank you x
