Daisy's Trust has been set up with one aim in mind.
To make her life as comfortable and enjoyable as we possibly can.
It would never have happened without the help and support of great friends.

Daisy suffers from the incredibly rare and debilitating illness known as Chronic Intestine Pseudo-Obstruction (CIPs). This means she cannot eat anything at all orally, and is instead fully reliant on being fed intravenously directly via her heart.

Daisy currently spends almost all her life attached to her feeding machine. Most days she needs to be hooked up to it for 18 hours. That doesn't leave a lot of time to do much else once she is disconnected. Days out and Holidays are extremely limited, simply due to the time and sheer logistics of transporting all her medicines, feed and equipment.
 Daisy in Hospital

In order to begin to make Daisy's life more comfortable, we plan a series of adaptions to our house. These include the installation of a vertical lift to enable Daisy to come downstairs even when she has been hooked up to her machine, and to start spending some quality family time with the rest of her family.

She requires a Wet Room to make it easier to shower her; she needs a Medical Storage Room as well as a Sterile Medical Preparation Room. But most of all, she needs a bigger bedroom for her own privacy, for the times she may prefer to stay in her room.

There are many other simple everyday things that Daisy will require whilst stuck indoors for such long periods, either upstairs or hopefully downstairs via her new lift, that the NHS simply does not fund. Things to keep her occupied, such as Arts, Crafts, Books and DVD's. Educational and Nursing needs. Not only whilst at home, but also during inevitable long Hospital admissions. The list is endless and ongoing even after the adaptions have been made.

As you can imagine, none of these things come cheap. As Daisy's Parents, we of course plan to fund things as best we can by our own means, but through future planned fundraising events thanks to the help of many great friends and family we hope to be able to make that task just a little bit easier.

So please take a look around Daisy's website. We've tried to make it a happy place as best we can! Check out the planned events, latest updates, and see what Daisy has been up to. Any donations are greatly received.

With all our Thanks, Tracy & Damon xx
