  • Grace had the accident when she was five-years-old at her Talbot Green home
  • Six years on her hair system needs repairing and family are appealing for help
  • The accident saw 38% of her body burned and left her in terrible pain
  • A little girl who lost her hair after a deep fat fryer accident is appealing for help to get it repaired six years on.

    Grace Shaw was just five years old when her life changed forever at her home in Talbot Green, when she fell and pulled the boiling hot contents all over herself.

    She burned 38% [object Window] – including parts of her head, indietro, braccia, legs and feetand went into shock from the unimaginable pain.

    Thanks to the ‘incrediblecare she received from staff in the A&E department at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in neighbouring Llantrisant, she survived.

    Grazia, who suffered the third-degree burns on April 28, 2016, was quickly covered in a damp towel by her dad Gary Shaw who then called mum Toni-Marie Grundy-Jones who was working in a restaurant five minutes away from their home.

    She got a hair system to cover the damage, but needs to be repaired so her family are appealing for help to afford the specialist item.

    Recalling the horrendous ordeal, Toni-Marie said: ‘Before I had gone to work I had put the deep fat fryer on and cut some chips ready to put in it. After the chips had been made I had put the fryer to cool on the counter. It had been turned off for about 20 minutes when the accident happened. I was later told the fryer’s contents still would have been 180 per 190 gradi.

    ‘When I got home, Grace was just shaking and screaming in pain and kept on saying ‘I’m dying, I’m dying’. We didn’t even wait for an ambulancewe just drove her to A&E ourselves.

    When Gary arrived at the doors of A&E with Grace cradled in his arms, Toni-Marie said they were taken straight into a side room where they were surrounded by medical staff.

    ‘They were fabulous. We had eight doctors and five nurses all around her,’ lei disse.

    ‘Grace had to be ventilated and sedated before being taken by ambulance to Bristol Children’s Hospital.

    For the first 13 hours of arriving in Bristol, doctors carried out emergency skin grafts on Grace and tried to stabilise her condition.

    She was then sedated for three days and spent a fortnight in intensive care as medics carried out skin grafts and procedures every other day.

    ‘It was touch and go for weeks whether she’d make it. She could have picked up infections at any time,’ said Toni-Marie, who stayed in the Ronald McDonald accommodation on site in Bristol while juggling her commitments to younger daughter Farrah.

    ‘But when she came round from the sedation, looked at me and said ‘I want black pop and raspberrieswe knew she was going to pull through. She’s just so strong and independent.

    Grace spent three months in Bristol before she was discharged, and now has regular appointments at the Welsh Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery at Morriston Hospital in Swansea.

    Ora invecchiato 11 Grazia, who loves dancing, is now flourishing despite everything she’s been through. But growing her hair remains an issue.

    Grace was gifted new hair which acts as a second scalp.

    ‘Grace has a large area of her head that can no longer grow back because the hair follicles and fat tissue is permanently damaged,’ said Toni-Marie, who now lives in Llanharry, Pontyclun.

    ‘She was kindly gifted a hair system in November 2020 by Jayne Bonds, of Bonds and Co in Penygraig, who read our story on WalesOnline and reached out to us on Facebook. Sfortunatamente, Grace’s system has some damage to the scalp, which means her system needs to be repaired in Italy.

    ‘Her head has also grown quite a bit. This means Grace would have to be without hair for roughly two months and being in high school this will be a huge confidence knock to her.

    A GoFundMe page has been set up to try and get Grace a new hair sistema. To donate please go here.
