    Story

    I have Lipoedema, a chronic disease. I have had the condition from the age of 16 but due to lack of knowledge by the medical profession, i wasn't diagnosed until i was 32. Because of this i am already at stage 3 lipoedema. I am constantly in pain 24/7 and have osteoarthritis in my knees because of the Lipoedema. I have been told if i dont get the lymph sparing liposuction, which is currently not available on the NHS, then i will lose my mobility and end up in a wheelchair.

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank you so much for your donation, we have managed to raise just over £1,000 in 30 days. I have a lot more fund raising to do to reach the £13,000 that is needed for the surgery. I plan to start another crowdfunding page once this one has closed at the end of this week so i can hopefully keep the same link. Im also holding a raffle to raise funds and some kind friends are running a half marathon for me next year. I have also been approached to do filming for a TV series, following people with a long term condition that effects their confidence, so watch this space. Thank you so much again, you have given me hope that i will get the surgery that i so desperately need. Lots of love Claire xxx

      How time flies, the 30 day limit on crowdfunding pages is up for me tomorrow. So my plan is to make a new one when this ceases, and ill donate all the money that has been kindly donated, back into the new page, so we can all see a running total. Thank you once again for donating.

      I suffer from lipoedema myself, so I can relate in some small way to some of the stuff you've gone through. Had a few winners on the horses, so I thought I'd share my good fortune ( with you )
