    Story

    Pic 1Left leg ankle after the accident but before Bone infection and Sepsis

    Pic 2 Metal work in back

    Pic 3 Left Leg ankle after... descion to remove Below the knee wasnt easy..

    11 years ago in October I suffered an 'accident', that changed my life forever. With numerous surgery's I think about 18, all in all, infections, and in and out of hospital. with metal work in my back fixing the L1 to L4 vertebrea with limited movement, in my lower left leg/ankle tib and fib fixed (no movement in ankle, which has dropped and inverted) so now walking with the aid of crutches on my tip toes, and unable to walk far due to the extreme pain I feel in both.

    2 years ago, I had sepsis and osteomylitis (infection of the bone) in my lower left leg and an open wound which keeps closing and opening and has now been open for 18 months now with no sign of healing.

    having attended the centre for rehabilitation for amputees, I am now having a below the knee amputation which is due to take place in November (can't wait to be honest) to get my quality of life back, I will be wheelchair bound at first for a good few months before they fit a standard prosthetic, as an active individual, are looking to raise funds for equipment to improve my quality of life even further. Equipment and prosthetics are expensive.. ie 1 below the knee blade for sports, & a more advanced prosthectic leg can cost from £1500 t0 £5000 plus, and a waterproof prosthetic (ie for the shower) can cost the same if not more, ramps around the house to help with access to rooms (limited funds available on NHS) etc..

    There are over 20 people a day, that are having amputations in the UK alone. So please donate anything you can.

    I really would appreciate anything you can spare to help with rehabilitation and quality of life not just for myself but for other people.

    As part of my recovery, will be helping people in the same situation, and will be raising awareness on mental health and amputee and recovery.

    So, I am setting up a charity called MY LEFT FOOT, which will help amputees from all walks of life.

    Helping one person might not change the world but it will change the world for one person.....

    If you can help please do, and pass on...........
