Run and dye and 5k inflatable race
Please note I will doing the run and dye challenge (In a wedding dress!!!!) in July with Kate and the 5k inflatable race in June with my son (James) and Kate and her son (David) and we are hoping to raise some money for Daisy again (sadly Daisy has had a rather long spell in hospital of late). Please see information below if you have not heard of Daisy’s story. We all look forward to your donations – the sponsor form will be on the desk shortly.
Daisy Palmer Trust
Daisy is just 14 years old and suffers from a very rare and debilitating illness called Chronic Intestine Pseudo Obstruction (CIPs) and Ehlers DanlosSyndrome (EDS)
You can read Daisy’s full story, and more about her illness on her website here: www.daisypalmertrust.co.uk
Daisy is unable to eat ANYTHING orally, and is instead entirely reliant on being fed intravenously for 24 hours everyday, via a Hickman line into her heart.
In order to make Daisy’s life more comfortable, many costly adaptations were needed to our house, including a Vertical Lift, Medical Preparation Room, and Medical and Equipment Storage Room. Alot of this is complete now, but unfortunately it still needs to paid for!
Aside from this, Daisy’s problems will never go away. Fundraising will need to continue as she grows older and more things will inevitably be required to simply keep her well and comfortable.
Imagine having to lay in bed almost all day long, every single day of your life.
Imagine being so bored out of your brain.
Then imagine not being able to pass the time away and relieve that boredom by eating something. Or just simply never being able to eat ANYTHING at all EVER.
Imagine constantly being taken in and out of hospital, being prodded and poked by Doctors and nurses all day long. Doctors that can’t even fix you no matter what they do.
Imagine never being able to travel abroad on holiday, because you can’t get insurance.
Imagine having a mass of tubes, pegs and bags always attached to your body, making every little twist and turn uncomfortable.
Imagine being in constant pain, so much pain that even the strongest painkillers just don’t even touch it. And you still can’t eat your favourite sweet, cake or meal to cheer yourself up…..
That’s Daisy’s life, EVERY SINGLE DAY!!
Please continue to help us to improve Daisy’s life the best we can, and keep her smiling through the pain. Daisy is so amazingly brave its the least she deserves
