The parents of a nine-year-old girl who was left with “life-changing injuries” after she was hit by a van in Sunbury are raising money to help cover her treatment.

The girl was left fighting for her life after she was involved in a collision with a white van in Staines Road East on November 10.

Her family are now attempting to raise £10,000 and 159 supporters had already donated £5,970 by 5pm on Wednesday (December 6).

“On Friday November 10 Tian’s life was saved by two off duty paramedics and she was airlifted from the scene to St George’s Hospital London where she has been in intensive care ever since.

“Her mum and dad have been by her side 24 hours a day and we know she has been receiving the best possible care.

“Remarkably, Tian is slowly coming off life support but we are left with the devastating and emotional reality that she will need extensive and expensive rehabilitation over the coming months and years, possibly for a lifetime.”

Almost one month after the crash, Surrey Police confirmed Tian is still receiving treatment in hospital.

Her parents continued: “We’ve been deeply touched by the support of family, friends and general public, with whom we have decided to start a fund for Tian so she will be able to access the best possible support she will need in the future.

“To give you an example of the kinds of things involved, we’re talking speech therapy, intensive rehabilitation to try and help her walk again and psychological support for what has been an extremely traumatic event for Tian.

“We don’t know if we’ll ever get our grade 5 pianist, grade 6 violinist, football fanatic, dancing girl back in the same way. What we do know, is that as parents we have to do something.

“Your support means the world to us all at what is undoubtedly the most difficult time we have ever faced in our lives.”
