Help Support Emma and her Family x

Unfortunately, over Christmas our lovely Emma fell ill, and as a result is now in ICU at Guys & St Thomas’ hospital in London.
After struggling initially with a cold, she started to deteriorate and was admitted via ambulance to Eastbourne hospital on Boxing Day evening. Shortly after arrival she was put in an induced coma, and within hours her husband Tony was told to contact family to come and say goodbye, as they didn’t think she would make it.
We are lucky to be able to say, that Emma has pulled through the first vital 48 hours, and is stable, but is still extremely critically ill.

As many of you know, she hasn’t had the best couple of years with her health and with baby Izzy being born extremely prematurely, as well as having Lupus. It has since been discovered, a Lupus flare up has caused her blood to thin and bleed into her lungs, and this is what has caused her to be so poorly. She is in the best place possible with St Thomas’ having the best lupus unit in Europe. However, we also want to raise as much awareness as possible about the severe complications that can arise with systemic lupus erythematosus.

We need to do as much as we can to make this time easier for the whole family, but especially Tony and Izzy, so we have setup this page to try and raise some money to support the travel and hotel bills with visiting Emma in London, and also for potential childcare for Izzy too.

Every penny can help with the financial worries that come with any family member falling ill, and is greatly appreciated by the whole family.

Thank you for your support.
