Fundraising For Emily
Hello my name is Sarah I'm 34 years old and a mother and I'm asking for a little help.
I have lived in Winchmore Hill all my life and have been a support worker for adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health issues for 17 years.
10 months ago my husband to be and myself had a beautiful daughter Emily.
However, Emily suffered a lot of trauma during birth, leaving her with severe disabilities with global development delay, cerebral palsy and epilepsy. As you can imagine the last 10 months have been very hard and emotional but my beautiful girl astounds me every day with her strength.
Emily can have up to 40 seizures a day however, continues to be a happy little girl. She is a true fighter and an inspirational little girl. I'm a very proud mum.
As any mother, I want to give my daughter the best possibilities in life and would do anything to ensure she reaches her full potential and has maximum quality of life.
My days are devoted to my little girl ensuring physio and development are maximise at home, attending appointments and monthly physio sessions with the NHS. However as a family we feel Emily would benefit from more professional input.
Emily has been accepted into the Bobath Centre in Finchley, a centre for children with cerebral palsy. They will do intense physio, speech and language therapy and help with her development delay. This would have a massive impact on Emily quality of life and help reach her full potential.
However we are self-funding this and this is where I'm asking for a little help.
We have organised a sponsored Cricket match between the two local clubs Edmonton Cricket club and Winchmore and a fun day which will include games, bouncy castle, Children's face painting, raffles and a BBQ on the 30th August 2015 to be held at Winchmore Cricket Club.
We also have a justgiving page at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/EmilyDanunnzio
We are currently having leaflets made up for the day however, would appreciate being able to put some raffles prizes on them. I would hugely appreciate any support either attendance or donations for raffle, or having the leaflets in your businesses once done for distributions etc... any help we can receive would be great.
I have left my contact details if anyone has any questions or would like to help us.
