Please Help My Niece in ICU

Friends, family and wider community, we reach out today with an urgent call for help. 

Just after Valentine's Day, 2020, my wonderful niece,  and her family were involved in a collision while driving near their home in.  Our  21 month old Nephew, her son, gained his angel wings shortly afterwards.  My niece was rushed to the Critical Care Unit and ICU.  

Her life partner  has been left to mourn his baby son, and struggles to watch his beloved fight for her life.  

My niece is currently in critical condition in the intensive care unit at the Major Trauma Center.  She has already defied her doctors expectations by surviving the first night. But her journey to recovery has only just begun, and it will be long and very hard. We are now looking at months, if not years of treatment, surgeries, and rehabilitation.  Our darling girl has not yet regained consciousness and does not know her son is gone.  

The couple were ecstatic to welcome  their baby into their lives.  The pair introduced him to the amazing countryside of Wales, the joy of the outdoors life, and also the wonders of reading and books - they loved the local library!  Every photo showed a smiling little guy experiencing life to the fullest. This family was an amazing unit.  

My niece is someone who always thought of others.  She gained a First Class Honours degree in Childhood Studies at Bangor University and went on to start her Masters in Learning Disability Nursing and is currently training to be a nurse.  Her Facebook page is covered in calls to help those less advantaged in some way.  

My niece is now in need of help herself.  Her family has been ripped apart, her mother, father, and beloved partner watch her fight for her life and have no idea what the future brings. 

I am asking for your help in supporting her recovery and rehabilitation through this enormously hard journey. 

We need help covering bills and expenses that accrue during her rehabilitation.  These bills will up in the thousands of pounds.  More details will be added as we get to each stage.  

All monies will go towards her rehab and/or funeral expense (should the worst happen).  All money donated will go directly to her life partner the love of her life and father of beautiful a beautiful little boy.  It will only be used for my niece who will need nursing, adaptive equipment, therapies, and round the clock care.  We are looking at years of expenses for this young family. They already have the heartache of loss and we want to help our beautiful girl recover as best she can.

If you wish to help my niece and her family please share this GoFundMe far and wide: 5 dollars from a stranger matters. 10 bucks from one of your coworkers makes a difference. Please post it to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Linkedin accounts.  

And finally, in whatever version of prayer or positive vibes you practice, please hold my niece and her family in your hearts. Keep the good intentions and healing love flowing so that we can have her back to helping others in need as quickly as possible. 

Thank you for taking time to read through this and for becoming a part of helping a family in crisis.    This is our chance to do something together, to rally and support, so that my niece and her family can heal.

With our deepest gratitude, 

Katy x
