Supporting the Devine-Giles family as they care for Tadgh

Christchurch, Canterbury

Hello everyone

We have set up this 'Give a little' page to support the family of wee Tadhg Giles, son of Greg and Laura (Irish Mammy from Co Clare).

Unfortunately, last week Tadhg had a 70 minute seizure, aspirated and stopped breathing twice and was on a ventilator to help breathe for him.

At present, he is still in hospital, off the ventilator thankfully but has sustained some slowing of his brain activity as a result of the seizures. His recovery may take weeks or months and at present his family are spending every moment at the hospital.

We are hoping any funds raised from this page will help support the Devine-Giles family for whatever they need at this time as they also have wee Teagan to take care of also.

Your support in any way is greatly appreciated.

Sending them lots of love and support.

March Update - P6  20 March 2024

These last 6 months we have seen so much trauma and pain, experienced grief that cant be explained in words and cried for endless hours .

Now that we are home , and even though tadhg is still not yet the boy he was, we are all beginning this new phase of recovery with more hope.

Don’t get me wrong it’s still super challenging and we are exhausted. The daily grind is relentless and our life’s have changed forever. We need 24/7 support and 2:1 for Tadhg during days.

That said, we will battle alongside you Mr T and wraparound you so you have the best possible therapies and systems and support. Improvements can and are happening daily and weekly ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks again to all the people who have supported and helped us along the way and are continuing to - we are grateful beyond words 🙏🙏🙏🙏
