As the title suggests, I need your help. Three years ago my wife was diagnosed with a degenerative spinal condition; Syringomyelia – she has a cyst of spinal fluid trapped in her spine and it’s crushing her nerves at around T-14. Already she spends most of her time in a wheelchair, eventually she’ll lose ability with everything from the waist downwards.
My wife is an outdoorsy kind of person – she loves archery (and she’s annoyingly better than me), LARPs, Walking in the woods and along the river sides. Sadly no wheelchair available to us through the NHS (or even that’s affordable to us if we buy independently) will cope with the kind of outdoors life my wife enjoys. Such a wheelchair does exist, it’s called a Mountain Trike.
It’s designed for exactly what my wife enjoys!
Here’s where you come in – these things cost £4,500 and we simply don’t have that kind of money. So, we’ve set up a GoFundMe to crowdsource the funding. If you can’t donate, please share our story in the hopes of finding people who can.
