#299 Annie

Request: Donations for carpet and a seizure monitor / Kind messages

This week, we’d like to help a little girl called Annie. She is 6 years old and has a rare form of cerebral palsy.

Annie has seizures and can’t walk or talk. She usually moves around her home by crawling along on her tummy.

Their carpet is very old and has worn thin, so there are nails poking through, which is incredibly dangerous for Annie. Her mum covers them as best she can, but it’s not safe.

Annie’s seizures often happen during the night. Her mum once found her blue and unresponsive after a seizure, so Annie now sleeps in her mum’s room.

Her mum is a single parent, and cares for Annie mostly on her own (Annie isn’t allowed any contact with her dad due to safeguarding concerns.)

We’d like to help make life a little bit easier for her, and safer for Annie.

What We Need

1. Donations: We'll use your donations to carpet their home and also to buy a seizure monitor for Annie. 100% of what you give will be used to help them. To donate online, click the link below, or to donate by text use the details in the box provided. 

2. Kind messages: To send a kind message to Annie and her mum, please either post it to 52 Lives (Life # 299), PO Box 3154, Reading, RG1 9AT, or email it by using the form below (your contact details will not be passed on).



We raised more than £2000 in one week - enough for new carpet as well as a seizure monitor, which will help keep Annie safe. Thank you so much - it's going to make Annie's life better and take a lot of worry away from her mum.
