WATCH: A West Sussex community pulls together for a sick toddler
6:45am 21st April 2017
A community in The Wittering's is coming together for a sick little girl this weekend.
Earlier this year, Spirit FM told you about Daisy, a four-year-old from Bracklesham who has cancer.
Last November, Daisy was rushed to hospital after running a high temperature.
"She was very lethargic and boiling hot so I took her to A&E to been seen and she just was not her usual self, after listening to her chest with a stethoscope doctors were concerned that air was not coming out of one lung", said her dad, Darren Wiggington.
"After having an x-ray they could see that Daisy has a collapsed lung and a tumour squashing her airways, after more tests, biopsies and scans we were told that Daisy has T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma a type of Cancer.
"Since this diagnosis our worlds have fallen apart."
Daisy and her parents are living away from their home, and spending most of the time at St Richards Hospital in Chichester receiving chemotherapy, on top of other intensive treatment.
She also has two sisters, a 5-year-old and newborn.
Because of her condition, Darren and his wife are unable to work as they have to be by her side night and day.
Darren added: "Bills and rent still need to be paid and our car is off of the road as the engine has seized.
"Everything seems a little too much for us at the moment and we are giving our all to make sure that Daisy gets better and beats this disease.
"Daisy should be living like any other child of her age but instead is in bed and very wobbly on her feet, feeling unwell and tired, this is a huge contrast from the child that she once was; she loved being outdoors on her bike or playing with her sisters but now has lost all interest.
"Our worlds have fallen apart and we really could do with a little help to ease some of the burdens of life right now."
Daisy's neighbours are coming together to host a special fundraising event for her on Saturday at the Pond Barn Country Club on Farm Road in Bracklesham.
It starts at 10am until late, with a mix of live music, activities and even an auction.
Organiser Robin Clapton said: "Almost every shop in the village has donated something. From surf boards to dinners, to massages from the health and beauty shop.
"The Rolling Stones have even given us two signed t-shirts to auction off! It's going to be a great day."
It will cost £8 to get it, and all the money will go towards helping Daisy and her family to help see her through the next two and a half years of treatment and to get her infectious smile back.
Robin added: "On the Friday she will be hospital that day, so we've all got our fingers crossed that in the morning she can come. She's such a fighter, and a beautiful kid, it's heartbreaking and tearful but it's also nice to see how well she's fighting."
