In only one year Ella's friends & family have raised over $150,000 to get this little fairy to St Louis! Ella was booked for surgery on her fifth birthday - May 3rd!
An unexpected hurdle sabotaged the victory of breaking world records and raising funds. Ella's family learned that a further $90,000 was needed only a week out from leaving as travel costs soared due to Ella's medical conditions & sponsorship fell through.
Yet each fairy has shown that no matter how small an offer of help, Ella's community could make magic.In less than one week $45,000 was raised and flights were booked AND we got home! We are now recouping costs and preparing for Ella's rehabilitation!
