Tuesday the 7th of August Paige was playing with her cousins after school when things took a turn for the worse, Paige was flown to Tamworth that night and to Sydney- Randwick Children’s Hospital ICU the following day.
After having an MRI completed, the specialist’s determined that this was a relatively unknown disease know as Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy (ANE).
ANE is a rare, severe and rapidly progressing disease affecting the brain, which develops shortly after a viral infection.
As you can imagine, it was hard to process all of this information and we were all in total shock and simply devastated. This diagnosis raises a lot of fears and concerns as you can imagine. We all want to be at Paigey’s side and to offer support for Paigey’s parents, Jess and Adam (better know as Jel and Hap).
As the future is uncertain and we do not yet know the extent or cost of Paigeys rehabilitation, the funds raised will mainly go to support any treatments and costs for Paigey.
Jess, Adam and Jess’ mum Cath Harborne have not left Paigey’s side and don’t have the time to think of anyone but Paigey – meanwhile the household bills will keep rolling in.
We would be forever grateful for anything you can donate. No amount is too small. We know the community has all been worried about Paigey and her family, so we hope that maybe this is a opportunity that you can assist them in a small way. Please dig deep and help this beautiful family in their time of need as they would be the first to help anyone in their situation!
