It’s been too long since I updated my GoFundMe account so I thought it was about time.
So here’s the update here; my walking frame broke and cannot be repaired, walking with crutches is agony on my wrists. I am looking to get a custom for purpose self-propelled wheelchair.
A mobility scooter would mean no exercise at all and I’m not a lazy person by any means. I would just like to be able to go into town without having to stop every five minutes, or meet up with friends and not slow them down. I still want to remain active.
The wheelchair wouldn’t be in constant use, it would be for my worst days when walking is out of the question or when I attend hospital/Dr appointments.
I’m asking for £500 which sounds both like a lot and not much at the same time. We’ve priced up a wheelchair and this £500 would ensure it could be customised to my needs and last me for a long time.
On my GoFundMe page, there is short descriptions of the main three issues that affect my mobility and how, as well as spoon theory. Even £5 or £10 would be a HUGE help to me, and if you can’t donate then a share of my campaign would be great too.
I’m also thinking of setting up a PayPal, specifically for this campaign if people would prefer to do it that way. Please let me know.
I really do appreciate the time you’ve taken to read this and if you have any questions I am happy to answer them either here or on twitter.
