I have set up this Go Fund Me Fundraiser in support of a very good friend of ours, David Burgess, commonly known as Dave Burgess The Magician or Magic Dave. Dave is such a genuine, positive and thoughtful person and always goes out of his way to be of help or be supportive. Some of you may know that when Dave was 20 years old he was diagnosed with Wilson’s Disease, a condition that affects 1 in 30,000 people.
Wilson disease is a rare genetic disorder characterized by excess copper stored in various body tissues, particularly the liver, brain, and corneas of the eyes. The disease is progressive and, if left untreated, it may cause liver (hepatic) disease, central nervous system dysfunction, and death.
Until recently Dave’s condition was managed very well but unfortunately on the 10-4-22 Dave was admitted to hospital following an unplanned visit. Dave had started to develop Jaundice as well as a condition called Ascites, which is a fluid build up in your abdomen and lower limbs.
After analysing the fluid the doctors determined that the fluid was infected and this would ultimately lead to liver failure.
Dave is now in a specialist Liver transplant hospital in Birmingham awaiting further developments and is on the list to receive a transplant.
Dave has now not seen his family in person for over two weeks, he has two young children who are missing him dearly and now he and his family have the added worry of covering the household bills. Dave is a self employed Magician and has won multiple awards for entertaining and helping the community.
While our daughter was in hospital Dave attended alder hey and put on a show for the children on the ward, he really is a special person.
We are hoping to ease the pressure on Dave and his family financially and enable Dave to await his transplant and recover without additional money worries.
If you can spare even just a small amount to contribute towards this fund please do, it all helps.
Thank you everyone in advance and please share ❤️
Get Well Soon Dave
