Story

Update April 30th 2021 - Message from Taylor

I would like thank everyone who has so kindly donated to the page. I have been so overwhelmed by all the support, it really kept me going through the darker days of staring at the hospital ceiling.

Since leaving hospital in September, I've been attending the Get Busy Living Centre a few times a week and this has helped me immensely with my rehab, meaning I am now fully independent & getting fitter every week.

Due to the generosity of everyone on this page I have been able to install a lift into my home meaning I can finally go upstairs! As well as buying a hand bike, which has given me so much freedom back as I'm now able to go on dog 'walks'/ bike rides again without holding everyone else up!

Thank you so much again, myself, my girlfriend & family have been so overwhelmed with the kindness shown to us all.

Cheers Tay
