Grace Yeats

If you've heard Grace's story, You'll be well aware of the struggles she's been through and the mountains she's overcome. As a 10 year old transitioning from a happy healthy girl to an almost completely dependent situation.

Two months after Grace’s 10th birthday, she had a mild virus; sore throat, runny nose, headache, cough. But the GP didn’t seem concerned, so no treatment was given - it was labelled simply a ‘virus’.

However, on that awful day, Grace woke in a wet bed, vomited in the shower and I found her sitting on her bed crying because her legs hurt and she couldn't get dressed!

We went back to the medical centre immediately and by then she was sitting hunched and dribbling but could still walk and answer questions.

We drove her to the emergency department at Wairarapa hospital by 10am where we were given a cubicle, Grace was still answering questions but was very flushed and slept most of the time.

Grace's mum said "If only I'd known that was the last day that I would hear her speak, there are so many questions I would have asked her, so many opinions I would have sought, so many of her thoughts I would have wanted her to share, so many answers she might have wanted from me".

Now after help from our Warrior Clan Grace is communicating both through her special iPad app however more importantly , she's now talking with her mum again. It's outcomes like this that make what we do worth while.

Thank you Grace for allowing us to be a part of your journey.
