Covid testing & a rough night!


Hi, it’s me again (Leah)!

Mel has had 11 seizures today alone, is in absolute agony and had hardly any sleep since Wednesday night…. she’s needing watched 24:7 & is as white as a sheet, we had to make our way to the airport for a private covid test today.

Lying on a stretcher getting her neck tractioned the entire journey to keep her stable and seizure free…. then back home to rest up until Tuesdays flight. The GoFundMe is up to almost £53k out of the £80k total (it started on around £44k as we continued from last time… so we have raised nearly £10k so far for this surgery)…. we still have a long way to go and a very short space of time to achieve our goal- so absolutely every donation, no matter how big or small is massively appreciated!

If you could participate in any fundraising or sponsorships we’d be very grateful! As at this point we don’t yet know the cost of the surgery & it’s believed the insurance won’t cover the full cost of the hospital stay.

Thanks again,

Leah, Mel’s PA
