LIFE SAVING SURGERY REQUIRED, "URGENT"

$83,441 of $180,000 goal
Given by 1028 generous donors in around 12 months

"LIFE SAVING SURGERY" only available in Germany.

Napier, Hawke's Bay

Trinity is just 19yrs old and needs URGENT lifesaving surgery. She has a connective tissue disorder that affects the collagen that runs through her body creating havoc + She has been confirmed with AVCs, Abdominal Vascular Compressions, which affects the blood flow to her organs & prevents her being able to hold food down & absorb nutrition. These Compressions are threatening her life if left untreated. Surgery is not available in N.Z.

$180,000 raised means Trinity can receive the lifesaving surgery at the Clinic Bel Etage in Düsseldorf with leading Vascular Surgeon Prof Sandmann & his Specialised team of Clinicians who have confirmed the urgency for treatment.

Trins life is one of constant pain, fatigue, nausea, blackouts, weakness, weight loss & malnutrition, all due to the inability to eat or drink without vomiting, pain & distress.

Trin is an avid equestrian, loves deeply & is loved by all that meet her. She is kind, passionate & lives for her horses. She dreams of life free of pain, the ability to eat, a life where she can dress without having to try & hide tubes hanging from her body, a life of quality.

The family have fought long & hard for 18 years within N.Z’s health system, however feel very let down as there is no longer support here, the only option is to get Trin overseas for the complex surgery required.The family is very grateful for the public’s help to raise the $180k to save Trinity's life.

We Must FIGHT...............  16 July 2024

Well what can I say apart from: ANGRY,, DISILLUSIONED, & FEARFUL?

These are currently the words that come to mind when thinking about the "Care & Help" that Trinity and others like her are being subjected to on a daily basis in regard to the Hospitals that are supposedly there to provide care and sustenance for these girls.

I shall not try and condense what it is that is now happening for Our Angel, but instead encourage you all to head over to Trinity's Health page for the latest information in our battle.

Much love and Aroha to you all. 💔💔💔
