Love for Anyssa

Beautiful Anyssa has had a tough time in her short 11 years - she has Rett Syndrome which has taken away most things kids and their parents take for granted......walking, sitting, swallowing and a voice.

Anyssa and her family are currently facing a horrendous time. Anyssa recently became seriously unwell with one collapsed lung and consolidated pneumonia in the other. Her severe scoliosis (a common complication of Rett Syndrome) is proving to be a major obstacle in her treatment. The attempts to reinflate her lung have been unsuccessful and she isn't responding to treatments like she has previously.

On advice from the multiple medical teams, they have discharged and are currently caring for their baby at girl home where she is surrounded by the things she loves.....Wiggles movies and One direction tunes and of course her adoring family.

It's difficult to understand the grief and overwhelming heartbreak this family must be going through but of course they don't have time for that at the moment because they have a very sick little princess to care for. They'll have to find the strength.

Money isn't going to make Anyssa well but it's going to help her amazing parents fund their additional support costs and ease the financial stress while they take time away from their jobs.  This will allow them to focus all their time and energy on being with Anyssa and provide whatever she needs to make this impossible task a tiny bit easier.

If you are able to help support this gorgeous family during this time, please do.
