Just4Children is supporting Tonia aged 20 from Eckington in Worcestershire who needs life saving surgery urgently which is only available in Barcelona.

Tonia started collapsing at 14 and was diagnosed by experts with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome with secondary disorders of Dysautonomia, mast cell activation disorder, gastro intestinal failure, bladder dysfunction as well as pots which led to collapse.

Tonia became bed bound and  spent three and half years of  her adolescence in hospital. Last year viewers watched as the BBC DIY SOS team finally gave her hope and enabled her to return home to Eckington.

Things took a turn for the worst when Tonia started suffering increased respiratory arrests and seizures. Her pain had become unmanageable and she recently made a plea for anyone to help her.

Due to her symptoms It was suggested that she had an upright MRI Scan. The results were sent immediately to an expert neuro and spinal surgeon in Barcelona who found that he needed to perform urgent surgery to save her life.

We must raise urgent funds for Just4Children to get her to Barcelona for surgery in April. She is at an advanced stage and without surgery will decline.

Tonia desperately needs your support.

Thank you
