    Story

    Fundraising for more independence

    I want nothing more than to be a fun Mommy again and to be that independent woman I used to be.

    No one ever imagines that their partner will have to push them around in a wheelchair like mine does or that you will have bladder and spinal issues at a young age, but sadly it does happen and I am one of the % of people each year that become disabled.

    I was one of the most active people and from an early age enjoyed many activities with family or on my own such as Ballet, Gymnastics, Horse Riding, Skiing, Swimming, Cycling, Mountain Climbing, Running, Sports Days, Girls Football and Brownies/Girl Guides. As I got older I learnt to sky-dive and worked at a Leisure Centre in Sutton Coldfield keeping very fit in work and at the gym. I enjoyed holidays abroad and in the Uk, camping and nights out with friends . I used to love to take my oldest son on many an adventure and chase after him in the park laughing as we ran around.

    Sadly life was to take a cruel twist with my second pregnancy and my health has declined ever since (I won't go into the pregnancy details) I had severe back pain early on and told both my midwife and GP but they kept saying it was just because I was pregnant, I told them many a time it was not just pregnancy and it took 18 months after our second son was born for me to get an MRI scan that showed I had two slipped discs that needed spinal surgery on! By this time however it was too late and the nerve damage had already been done. I can no longer feel down the front of my right leg and my feet like to trip me up. I can no longer tell when my bladder is full as I have lost feeling which is no fun when still young! I can not walk distance whilst out and use walking aids in the house. I could go on about how things have affected not just me, but also my family but I would be here all day and am sure people have things to do!

    Therefore I am asking for assistance to help me purchase a travel mobility scooter that will fit in our car boot and in order that I can take the youngest out, that my husband does not have to push me with his bad knee's, that we can shop again with ease and my husband can have his hands free to either carry things, play with our son or just even put them in his pockets on a cold day. That I will feel freedom again and enjoy more family time together.

    I said to myself I would never set one of these funding accounts up but sadly due to my many co-morbidity's I lost my full time job and have not been able to work fully since as I always seem to either be having surgery or hospital appointments. I need to feel a sense of worth again and above all, I NEED TO BE A MOM TO MY CHILDREN AGAIN

    I will offer the highest donor a signed copy of my poetry book, Of Poetry and Thoughts- Anne K Bowyer- Over 16's due to adult content
