Story

I am fundraising to help my friends, Chris, Sue and Jamie North. Chris and Jamie were on a holiday in Sweden when they came off their motorbike. Jamie broke his leg, but Chris was severely injured and broke his neck, various ribs and injured his spine.

Chris had an operation on his neck in Sweden and has no feeling from his waist down. He also has no movement in his right arm, limited movement in his left arm and can't use any of his fingers.

There was a complication trying to get him transported from the hospital in Sweden to Addenbrooke's in the UK as the insurance company did not want to pay for it. Sue has had to rely on a friend and family to pay the £14,000 needed to get him back in the UK. On top of that her friend also paid for them getting to Sweden, accomodation for a few days and for them to take Jamie back to the UK as well.

The outlook for Chris is also uncertain and currently he is expected to be transferred to the Spinal Injury unit of the Stoke Mandeville hospital in the near future for further treatment. This will mean that Sue and Jamie will incur even more expenses each time they want to visit him.

    Chris has been moved from Addenbrookes to the Lister in Stevenage, while he waits for a space in Stokes Mandeville. He has a bit of movement in his right arm now as well as his left arm, but still can't move his hands and also no movement in his legs yet. He has been able to talk again for a while now and is in good spirits. Visiting times at the Lister are from 9 am to 9 pm. Sue can't drive so any offer of taking her to the hospital is much appreciated.
