Morning, lovely people! I have something very important to ask you. This gorgeous little girl is my neighbour and urgently requires surgery that is currently only available overseas and time is running out for her. Her lovely parents have launched a fundraising campaign to SAVE ELLA’S SPINE. It’s a heartbreaking story and I’d really like us to help. If you can take a few minutes to read through the post that would be great. If you’d like to share on your Facebook page or on Twitter and, even better, spare a couple of pounds, there’s a little girl with a wonky back who’d be eternally grateful. Much love. C : ) xx
Ella’s mum says: Many of you will know that our oldest daughter Ella, has suffered with ill health for the last few years. She has two long term health conditions Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and Scoliosis. Ella has a double curve in her spine which is rapidly progressing. We’ve reached a stage, where Ella now requires spinal surgery.
Having agonised over the decision, we strongly believe that an innovative surgical technique called Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT) offers Ella the best possible outcome. Sadly this life changing surgery is only available overseas. We’ve therefore launched a fundraising campaign in an attempt to raise the money required, unfortunately time is running out for Ella to benefit from this technique.
If you’d like to read more about Ella or donate then please go to our Go Fund Me page:
We also have a Facebook page
Ella is also writing a blog, which you can be found at
We’d be especially grateful if you could share these links with everyone you know, follow our pages and you’ll be able to keep up to date with our campaign and upcoming fundraising events.
For anyone that knows us, you’ll realise the decision to publicly fundraise has not been an easy one. However I passionately believe this is the right treatment for Ella and I’m asking for your donations and help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
