Please help save my bestfriends life

My beautiful bestfriend, Mia, has almost lost her life to anaphylaxis multiple times since August 2021. She is only 26 years old.

Mia was training to be an adult nurse and has spent her life caring for others. She has more recently become a huge advocate for the chronic illness community. She is loved by her family, friends and by everyone who meets her.

She is the most beautiful soul I have ever met.
Mia suffers with a number of chronic illnesses, but more recently has developed MCAS, a life threatening condition.
MCAS is a relatively unknown condition that can cause repeated episodes of anaphylaxis due to mast cell mediators being released into the blood. Mia’s triggers are still unknown and she is at risk of respiratory arrest at any moment.

Mia’s Mum and Dad have had to watch their daughter be resuscitated too many times. Her boyfriend has had to perform CPR to keep her alive and the heli-med and paramedics have saved her life 3 times.

Knowing that we may lose her on her next attack is unbearable. This cannot happen.

She has been on the waiting list to see the immunology team via the NHS for months but we still don’t have an appointment date.

Our fears and the fears of the professionals who’ve treated her are that she won’t make it to this appointment. Her body is tired and in a spiral of reactions that we and local doctors cannot control.


Mia needs to be seen by an MCAS/Anaphylaxis specialist and start treatment that could save her life urgently. We have found a specialist who can help but in order for Mia to get an appointment she has to access this appointment privately.

That’s where you come in…
Please please help me save my bestfriends life. The money raised will be used to fund a number of private appointments with a specialist. It will give her access to treatment she desperately needs and hopefully save her life. In essence it will give her a chance at the life she deserves.

If you can’t donate please please share this anywhere and everywhere you can.

This cannot be the end of her story x
