THE mother of a disabled baby who launched an online campaign to raise funds for life-changing equipment has thanked the public for their support in helping her fit a sensory room.
Jade Rowland, from Wombwell, felt she was left with no other choice but to fundraise as her daughter Ellie-May was in need of a sensory support for her development.
The one-year-old has a rare condition called tuberous sclerosis, which causes her to get tumours all over her body, including her brain.
Ellie-May also suffers with severe epilepsy and west syndrome which gives her small spasms.
Thanks to public donations on her online fundraising page, Jade has been able to fit a summer house into her garden that will act as the sensory room.
“I’m completely overwhelmed with the public’s support, we were lucky to raise enough for a summer house for Ellie-May.
“We’re getting it fitted soon and we can’t wait. This will help Ellie-May to balance and develop.
“We’re still raising money now to get some more sensory equipment in the room but we can’t believe how generous people have been.
“Our house is so small, and without the public’s support Ellie-May wouldn’t have the important equipment she needs.
