Its finally come around to actually plucking the courage to raise money for the lil Bellemeister.
And how we do that? Well, I'll let Belle explain it in a lil message for you all here
(we are loving the "Id thank you so dearly" quote.... and I assure you that was NOT rehearsed!!)
We would not be able to think of such a chance to be seen by professionals in the States hadn't it been for Ruth and Dr Scott Denton. Ruth has been reading my blog and Ellies story for like - ever - and has discussed this matter with her husband and he with his associates. They have offered to see us in various clinics near Las Vegas and our intention is to go in Spring. Its imperative we tray and raise £5,000 and to do this, belle will walk 1 mile. To you or I, 1 mile is nothing but to Ellie its 16 times her capability. She generally manages 100 meters on your average stretch before she needs to use a pushchair.
Going to Nevada may open up new lines of investigation of which we have been told that we have exhausted here. This is unacceptable. We will not sit back and leave belle to get on the way she does now.
I wonder if you could help?
We have set up a website to explain the trust here
We are doing all we can (but moreover, Belle is doing lots of the hard work).
If you could perhaps share the video with your friends or share the cause on your respective blogs. Share the cause on your forums or private yahoo groups- we would LOVE that
Or have a coffee morning/crop raffle. Maybe a whip round at work? Anything you can give, even little pennies, would be so much appreciated :)
In the meantime, Im collating donations from craft suppliers wherever I can (CHA not excluded!!) to build a raffle prize like no other. That will be in addition to the sponsored walk to be held in April. More about that raffle in due course.
Thank you so much :)
Love Kirsty and Mark Wiseman
