Help a single mom to give daughter dream garden

Heather is a beautiful woman who has had her life turned upside down she has work hard all of her adult life so that she can have the things she wanted.  Then she became a mum to a beautiful little girl who she named Gia.  Heather made sure she worked hard to give her daughter a nice home and everything she needed was there.

Heather loved to give help to charities and help raise awareness and also raise money for them.  Heather was raising money for a charity and this is where her story starts 

at the age 11 Heather was diagnosed with diabetes type 1. She has grown into a beautiful woman who did everything for everyone and helped the best that she could.  has had different type jobs and did the best that she know she could 

Heather has always gave to charities in different ways to help feed the homeless and so much more 

she was fundraising when her life was about to be turned upside down.  Doing a running event,  she rubber her toenail and it turned into an ingrown toenail this is what changed her everyday life that she knew 

she has an infection which was cause but time didn't help her she had been to her doctors and they did what they needed to do for her but unfortunately the infection had started to spread down her big toe as the time had gone but it was time for heather to adjust to loosing her toe.  As the doctors were trying to save her toes the infection had spread to her lower leg.  Before she knew it, Heather had become an amputee and that is when life started becoming very hard mentally, physically, emotionally and financially

just the little things in life was difficult like going for a shower and all the things we take for granted like being able to go into her back garden to watch her daughter play like a normal 6 year old little girl should be able to do

then someone came in a said the would be able to help with the garden and make it more accessible for Heather to go in but has made it a lot worse to the point where it has become unsafe for gia to be in the garden on her own.

All heather wanted was to make the garden a safe place where gia could be a happy 6 year old little girl who can forget about everything going on around her and play in her garden where she has lots to do and show off to her friends 

while all this was going on heather had to move homes because of her old landlord would not adapted the house so that heather and gia could stay there instead 5 days before heather had leg amputee she had to uproot her and her daughter to a new house which was not adapted to her needs, the past year has been a nightmare  being house bond, it just caused a massive upset and depression no just to heather to gia as well 

we are asking for donations towards being able to create a play area for Gia, and also a accessible and relaxing garden for Heather to be able to relax in tranquil area, around all her hospital appointments, surgeries  

Thank You for taken the time to read this its not the full story but we can tell you more about what heather and gia have been thought this passed year if you would like to know more
