Dawny’s Disney Dream

Hi there :)

first let me thank you for taking the time to read this,

My daughter was unfortuantly born with only half a heart, known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome,  this is a conditon which has no cure. since birth she has had 4 open heart surgery’s , her first at only 6 days old. she spent the first 197 days (over 6 months) of her life from birth in hospital,  and first 8 months fed via ng tube. she takes meds daily, and visits the hospital for check ups twice yearly, she also takes many ambulance rides due to sudden and dangerous changes in her heath. she has a life expectancy of just 14 years, and she is currently 9 (as of march 2019) . The mental strain really takes its toll on her as she tries to navigate daily life through school, friendships and beyond, there is no aspect of her life that isn’t affected by her heart.

through the amazing generosity of a wish charity we have been lucky enough to recieve a holiday to disney world florida, but will receive no spending money, so there are still some expenses we have to cover and would appreciate any help towards this so we can all enjoy this once in a life time trip with as little stress as possible, any money left will be given back to the wish chairty :) and in the future we will definitley find  a way to give back, this is a once in life time trip she wont ever get a chance to do again, so i just want to make every wish of hers come true ❤️ Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my brave warrior !

We leave in october 2019

What the money would go towards:
•✅ (we now have, thank you!) A portable pulse oximetery machine (she will need oxygen on the plane so I need to be able to monitor her oxygen saturations throughout the flight, these cost around £160) 
• extra sensors for her pulse oximetry machine
•wheelchair insurence✅
•full first aid kit
•transport to and from the airport in england
•transport to and from the parks (via uber)
•transport to and from the hospital should she need medical assistance/oxygen
•clothes to match the warmer climate
•wifi on the plane (to keep her calm, it’s her first ever flight, she’ll be hooked up to machines and oxygen for 11 hours!)
• food and drinks on the plane and in the park, she gets dehydrated very easily so must drink constantly, she also needs extra food on high energy days

Extra’s Dawn-louise would love to get the chance to experience

•a visit to the Bibbity bobbity boutique for a full princess makeover!
•breakfast at chef mickey (she’s been eyeing up mickey waffles since 5!)
•dinner at cinderellas royal table (a chance to meet all the princesses)
•dinner at be our guest (the only place you can meet the beast, and the only way to see his castle)
•food during the days in the parks (she is desperate to taste all the mickey shape food)
•souvineers (to help keep the memory alive)
• and some to cover any trips to the hospital we may need if she takes a turn (in 2018 she had to get 4 ambulances because she required oxygen)

We are a small family, it is just the two of us, so money is already very tight as it is, so the help would really make this the best holiday for the both of us, a week away from the stresses of every day life, a chance to just be a family, be a kid, have fun❤️

thank you so much again for taking the time to read this, and if you donate, we could not, be more thankful...I don’t normally ask for money, I like to work hard for what I have, but time with my little girl is running out, and I want to make all her wishes come true... with maybe the help of some fairy godmothers and fathers ❤️
