Story

My lovely husband has a terrible condition called Alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency. This is a genetic disorder that causes lung and liver disease or both. Rolly has emphysema and bronchiectisis, diverticulitis and other health complaints. He has not been able to work for over 2 years and he relies on nebulizers 4 times a day, takes countless steroid tablets and regular antibiotics. The simplest of tasks is also difficult and causes breathlessness and pain.
Despite his problems he is a very happy go lucky man who doesn't complain. He has lost 3 siblings to this condition, all 50 and under.

I am trying to raise funds to but a portable oxygen concentrator. We still want to enjoy going away and in order to travel on a plane he needs oxygen and Airline oxygen is a small fortune on top of any other costs that a disabled person has to pay out in order to go away. The cost of hiring one is £275 per week with a £300 deposit, with only 1 reliable company in the UK offering the service. Airlines allow concentrators to be used but only FAA approved models. A good 2nd hand one is as much as £1600. Which is the amount we are trying to raise.

If we can purchase a good FAA approved machine we would like to help others out in a similar situation by hiring it out at a much more reasonable cost, and any hire costs would fund the servicing of it to keep it in tip top condition.

Any monies that are raised above the cost of the POC will be donated to alpha 1 charities that are working along drug trials to try and find a cure or proper treatment for this disease that doesn't discriminate between old or young.

Any amount donated will be very much appreciated.
Thank you
