Laser surgery costs for Estelle
Estelle has a rare neurological condition called Sturge Weber Syndrome. Part of this syndrome has caused delayed learning, delayed physical development, glaucoma, seizures, brain involvement and a very large port wine stain birthmark which covers 90% of her head and face as well as half of her body. Funds raised will help us cover the costs of the non funded treatments. The DHB fund 4 sessions and we have been told she needs around 50 treatments, 20 within the next few years and 3-4 per year ongoing to help lighten and keep the birthmark smooth and healthy. Most importantly to help Estelle look and feel the best she can.
Use of Funds:
Cover the laser surgery costs on Estelles face to reduce the red port wine stain
