Nobody knows how long it will take Felicity to recover; she may never be the same again. When she is well enough to leave critical care at Noah's Ark Children's Hospital in Cardiff, Felicity will need a wheelchair, accessible toilet and a bigger bedroom downstairs. A new house will therefore be needed. Felicity's mother, Frances, and father, Alec, need all the help and support they can get. Frances suffers from severe Chrones disease and is unable to work and contribute to the costs of her care. Frances and Alec haven't left Felicity's side since and they are overwhelmed with the support from family and friends.
Felicity has made minor improvements. The best was when her muscles began to work in her cheeks and was able to smile at her family for the first time in weeks. However, Felicity is still in a critical condition and as a family all we wish for her to be comfortable and as happy as possible.
Any donations will be very grateful and it will mean everything to Felicity and her family. It has already cost a significant amount with travel expenses, living costs and saving up funds for a new house that is suitably equipped for Felicity's new needs.
On behalf of Felicity and her familiy we thank you for your kind donations and support.
Thanks for all the donations and support this year... Happy Christmas!

Hi there I am a local taxi driver from Newport just want to let you know me and the lads at the gym have come across your suituation on facebook and really wanna help, we are looking into doing a charity boxing match. Will keep you updated.
I have a son, Ridley, who diagnosed autism spectrum disorder since 2 yrs old. I dont even know where to begin or how to even cope the feelings you guys as a family dealing at the moment. I might be able to feel small partial amount of the burden and battles you guys goin through just to give all the best for the children. For sure, a simple act such as prayer goes to your daughter with the whole family. Hopefully any improvement even the slightest such as a single smile she make could lighten up whatever mixed up worry-ness burden feelings etc that the family goin thru. Bless you all with prayers and faith.
Hi there Just to offer my thoughts and prayers. My little boy age 4 had this last april. He was ventilated in ICU a week and hospital a month. Have you contacted GAIN a UK charity it can provide info and possible grants? Please also join the Guillain Barre Kids page on facebook. Lots of parents of children who had GBS can offer support. Keep positive and each day can bring improvements. I hope this page raises funds to help you and your family through this odeal.
