We (Shannon's parents and I) would like to start by saying a very big thank you to all who have donated...friends, family, strangers, all whom have come together to help Shannon's family get the eye gazer I started this fundraising for. Your donations and support to the family are overwhelming.
Shannon is a joyful, outgoing 12 year old girl whose life changed dramatically when she was knocked down by a car in March 2014, Shannon spent 6 months in hospital in Cardiff and then 3 months in the childrens trust in Tadworth.
Shannon was able to come home in December which was lovely for the family to have their little girl home for Christmas.
Unfortunately Shannon suffered a very bad brain injury and now requires round the clock care, her family have had to move house to a bungalow to support the changes Shannon needs.
Shannon's mum cares for her along with her dad, elder sister and brother and had to give up work to give her daughter the full time care she needs.
They have a hoist, wheelchair, other medical equipment and mobility car, but there is so much more that the family require to help Shannon lead a fulfilled life
The family are in need of items of a sensory nature to help aid Shannons recovery.
More software for the eye gazer, (each costs £1000) a sensory garden and many other things/equipment.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
I along with others will be carrying out a series of fundraising events throughout the year, from a fun day disco, mountain climbing, to a half marathon walk to try and raise the money to make this come true and help the family. (See event page for forthcoming events) for which you could sponsor.
Please dig deep and help the family's dream come true. It would be greatly appreciated by us all.
