Willows Story - Why Shine needs your support 

‘Shine was amazing and helped provide much-needed positivity regarding spina bifida and a life a child/adult can have.’

After her unborn baby was diagnosed with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus at her 20 -week scan, Emmy found Shine through a Google search and has been in contact with the charity since.  
‘They were able to breakdown MRI scans and doctors' reports which painted a very bleak picture and without such positivity and better statistics, Willow may not be here today.’ 

Willow is now 5 and loves her chow chows, monster and mayhem. She loves going to the park with her Mummy and Daddy. 

Many of Shine’s services are entirely funded by the generosity of the general public. Any support you can give us this ‘Go Yellow for Shine’ day would be greatly appreciated. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly fundraising team by emailing fundraising@shinecharity.org.uk.
