Story

Charlotte's Story -

Charlotte Pryor is a beautiful, funny and caring 33 year old mother of 2 amazing young boys, Oscar 9, and Felix 5. She has been partner to Martin Wood for 18 years in a very strong and healthy relationship.

In December 2020 Charlotte was sent for an MRI scan after experiencing weakness in her right hand. In the week leading up to Christmas, Charlotte was diagnosed over the phone with the shocking results being an intramedullary tumour. A sizeable tumour was growing inside Charlotte's spinal cord between the c3 and c5 vertebrae high up the neck. After some more tests in January a decision was made for a lifesaving operation which took place at Sussex County Hospital in Brighton on 02/02/2021. It was a long and traumatic surgery. A success in terms of fully removing the tumour, but the result is a spinal cord injury with serious neurological damage. Charlotte awoke paralysed from the neck down, unable to feel anything or move her limbs, a devastating situation.

Charlotte spent the next 5 days in an intensive care unit and is now awaiting a transfer to a specialist spinal rehabilitation centre where the stay will likely be a number of months. It's currently a case of waiting for a bed to open and then rehabilitation can commence to try and give Charlotte as much independence back as possible and ultimately the pathway to returning home to her family who she loves so dearly.

This is a truly heartbreaking and extremely rare situation. So I have set up this page to try and help remove any unnecessary financial burdens from Charlotte and Martin. On top of the day to day costs of living with 2 children, regular hospital visits and expensive equipment, either a house move or substantial modifications will also be needed to allow Charlotte back home as soon as possible.
