She suffers from Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome.
Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome is a rare condition affecting 1 in every 20,000 to 40,000 people. It affects each sufferer differently.
For Lottie, it causes chronic and acute pain, mobility difficulties, internal bleeding, thrombosis and chronic fatigue.
Lottie has to use a wheelchair in everyday life, and she has recently discovered Wheelchair Dance. Being the positive person she is, she has taken part in her normal wheelchair, but will need a dance wheelchair to continue.
It gives her such joy, that I wanted to help.
I am offering anyone who wants a dog portrait, the chance to have one painted by me, for £100.
This is a painting I made for Lottie a few years ago, but you can see more dog paintings on my gallery site.
There are other ways to help Lottie - and if you'd like to help, her wheelchair fund raising site is Lottie's Wheelchair Fund
To order a dog portrait, you need to do that through Lottie's site.
Thank you for reading.
