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.
I have recently been told by doctors and physiotherapists that in order for me to no longer be in pain when performing what you know as ordinary tasks, I will need to travel to most places by wheelchair.
I have been diagnosed with a condition which causes a dramatic weakness in her lower body muscles. In addition to this, I experiences temporary paralysis on a daily basis, this causes my hips to sublax or partially dislocate and often makes my legs give way underneath me.
The doctors have recommended a wheelchair to purchase and use. This wheelchair will not only reduce the pain that she constantly feels from walking, but will importantly allow her to travel without the need of any additional assistance.
We would love to be able to raise enough money together to purchase this wheelchair and remove this weight from the shoulders of her mum.
Please contribute whatever amount you can, it really will mean more than you know.
