Hi my name is delma
I am trying to raise 350 pound to buy two batteries a 3pin charger and rain cover for a mobility scooter..This is to enable me to be able to get out of my house more and improve my quaility of life..Maybe to go shopping or see family members..i was diagnosed over 5 years ago with a very rare genetic disease called familial adenomatous polyposis..This causes bowel cancer and lots of problems within the stomach and digestive track.. so I had to have my bowel and rectum taken out and a jpouch made..i also have fatigue this makes me feel very weak to being constantly tired or lacking energy. .Since having my pouch done in 2013 I have become very withdrawn and depressed..i was a very out going person but find it hard to get out and about due to needing the toilet sometimes up to 30 times a day..i am also in chronic pain so I am on the waiting list to get my ileostomy (stoma) put back..This should be done in jan/Feb 2018..i also had a bunion remove in 2015 this Aug I had to go back to see my foot surgeon as I am getting a lot of pain in my foot..i was told I now have nerve damage in my foot and will need to see someone from a pain management clinic..i am already on lots of pain medication which causes side affects..i live up on the hills and find it a struggle when going out and having to stop all the time..Its very very rare that family or friends come to see me so it would be nice for me just to get out and visit people instead of being stuck in a house with nothing to do..so any help would be very much appreciated and thank you for taking the time to read my story
Oh i also have two grandaons age 7 and 5..i also have another grandson due in jan..so it would be nice to be able to go and see them more..i would also like to take them out and do things with them
