    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In October 2014 whilst studying to become a registered nurse I was diagnosed with a rare spinal condition called Cuada Equina Syndrome.

    Leading up to the initial diagnosis I had completed extensive fitness and nutrition training. It was my absolute passion and I received a number of medals and certificates as well as achieving a qualification in fitness Instructing.

    Following this I went on to care for young adults with profound learning difficulties and gained a qualification in Health and Social Care. This enabled me to study for my A levels during the evening and I successfully gained a place at university.

    Since then my life has changed considerably and my dream of becoming a registered nurse within the British Army has unfortunately come to an end.

    In the past four years I have undergone emergency decompression surgery, various spinal injections and a spinal fusion. The condition has left me with nerve damage and has had a profound affect on my bladder, bowels and overall health.

    From my own personal experience health practitioners tend to steer towards medicating the issue with opiates and other heavy tablets. I reject this and have desperately tried many alternative therapies to ease the pain. However the therapies I find beneficial such as acupuncture are often quite expensive and aren’t widely available on the NHS.

    Despite the daily struggles I am pushing myself everyday to grow and be successful. I have plans to set up a charity helping people who have been through domestic violence as well as continuing my current studies with the Open University.

    I am trying to raise funds to enable me to see a private orthopaedic specialist who can offer alternative treatment.

    I want nothing more than to be able to live a life where I am able to give back to others, be more independent and have a successful career.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my story

    Any help and support would be greatly appreciated <3
