Story

My name is Dan Brookes, im 33 and i currently have a tracheostomy in my neck to help me breathe and a feeding button in my stomach to help me eat as i don't eat orally.

Due to lack of funding from the NHS they have now stopped supplying my Silver Tracheostomy tubes, which are made by a company called KAPITEX, These tubes are around £800 and i'm trying to raise fund's for a couple of these which i need as they help me to breath, the one i have got was second hand and it all bent and colour changing in my neck and if i raise anymore money it will go to more treatment on finishing my tongue off under surgery.

I only have 20 per cent of a tongue and iv never been able to bob it out this cause's problem's for me to swollow, so the extra fund's will go toward's in having skin graft's off my arm and leg's and try and be able to extend my tongue, currently i'm on Morphine to try and stop the pain from my tongue, when i was 2 i had it cut off as it was too big for my mouth.

My health condition is called Cystic Hygroma and swelling's come on my face and if they get too severa i have to have operations, I'm also on Anxiety Medication as my condition make's me very anxious.

    Sad to hear you can’t have what you need to improve your quality of life. Don’t know what we would have done if we couldnt have had everything we needed for our little boy. Hope this helps a little x
