Story

So here I am at the mercy of the people, begging for your help in anyway possible. Please, if you can, give my wife, Kara, the best gift that we take for granted. Thank you so much in advance................... Kara was seven years old when she developed Type 1 Diabetes. After giving birth 20 years ago, went blind through it and had surgery to repair her eyes. Twelve years ago Kara lost her left leg due to bad circulation and a sore on her foot and had surgery to remove some toes first and then eventually her leg, below the knee. 10 years ago went through exactly the same only with her right leg. I can no longer watch Kara frustrated, in pain and having to slam her legs on the floor 20 times or more to get them to fit in the sockets or put on or take off extra stump socks in public etc. They don't fit properly and have caused Kara to have surgery after surgery to repair the damage to her stumps caused by this. Over the past 12 years or so we have visited the NHS prosthetics department virtually every other month for adjustments, bits taking off, bits putting on, new casts etc etc etc. The NHS staff have always tried to help but obviously the funds are very restricted, basic prosthetic legs cost thousands of pounds and of course we understand that Kara isn't the only amputee in the world !! Simple things like walking, steps, the beach, carrying things aren't easy or pain free tasks. Even holding my hand whilst walking hasn't happened in the 12 years ( propping up on my arm usually ) As well as all of this had a kidney and pancreas transplant in January 2017. We see amazing prosthetic legs in movies and on TV and just keep asking why can't it be like this for Kara ! Cost is always the let down. I feel completely useless and cannot do anything to make things easier, I have tried so many times. If you can in any way help us to raise money for a private specialist or know of anyone in this field we would be eternally grateful. It is a BIG ask but here I am. Thank you, so much. Alan.
