Charity

The Daisy Garland
A family-run national children’s charity providing active support for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and their parents/carers. The charity was set up in memory of our daughter Daisy who tragically died at 6 years of age from SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients). We provide NHS hospitals with ketogenic dietitians - a medically recognised and accepted way of treating drug resistant epilepsy. This diet is not widely available on the NHS due to lack of funding. We also provide grants for night-time breathing monitors to children with drug-resistant epilepsy.

FUNDRAISING FOR THE DAISY GARLAND

PROVIDING ACTIVE SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN WITH DRUG-RESISTANT EPILEPSY

'A Journey of hope ... for children with epilepsy'

     Many parents take it in turn to sit up at night to watch over their child while they sleep, too scared to leave their side in case they have a life-threatening seizure, requiring emergency rescue medication. A Daisy Garland SATs monitor can make all the difference. For the families involved, their monitors cannot come soon enough.

       As a mother of a disabled child with epilepsy I want to fundraise for this worthy charity... MY CHALLENGE is to swim a mile and hopefully raise enough money towards their monitors.  Each night-time breathing monitor currently retails at £880.00.

 Will you help me fundraise to put towards The Daisy Garland's next night-time breathing monitor?   Please sponsor me today. 

 ****UPDATE****

Thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and was assured by NMLC staff and my ex boss who travelled all the way from Dorset to count lengths and make sure I didnt stop or cheat! ... that I completed 130 lengths/2 miles.

===GREAT NEWS===

 A huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored me. Together we have raised enough for two night time breathing monitors for the dear children under the wing of The Daisy Garland Charity. A family run charity who I know  work tirelessly to help children with drug resistant epilepsy, I am full of admiration for The Daisy Garland Charity and all that they do ! xxx
