Leapfrogg's Love for Lyra

Thanks for visiting the Leapfrogg team fundraising page.

We've joined together to raise money for a special cause this year. You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your donation can really help us smash this goal!

This year, Leapfrogg is raising money for a little lady called Lyra and giving all our effort and support to her and her family.

Lyra is the daughter of one of our Froggers close friends, so it’s a cause that is personal to Leapfrogg and we are very happy to be supporting Lyra and her family this year.

Lyra was born on 16 July 2012 with severe brain damage and congenital CMV – a common but little known condition, which causes jaundice, brain damage, liver problems, hearing loss and vision problems. CMV is a common virus that can effect people of all ages with no signs or symptoms, and no long-term effects, however it can be very dangerous to unborn babies. This is what happened to little Lyra.

She was also born with Hepatosplenmegaly, which stopped her vital organs working properly and Thrombocytopenia which affected her blood and made her very ill. She is severly brain damaged as a result of the virus, is registered blind and also has cerebral palsy.

Lyra is not even two years old yet, her life so far has been very difficult and challenging for both her and her family. Even though every day comes with a different challenge to overcome, Lyra is a loving little girl who smiles and loves a good cuddle!

We would love to help make Lyra's life just that little bit better by helping her and her parents Lucy and James in paying for very expensive therapies and equipment needed to improve her standard of life and keep that smile on her face!

You can find a lot more information on Lyra's life so far by visiting her blog

As a team and also as individuals we will be raising money throughout the year for Lyra.We will keep you updated on our progress and thank you in advance for all your support and donations.

Love the Leapfrogg Team x
