Story

hidden Disabilities

Dear All

Hello

My name is Dennis Skidmore. Six years ago I contracted throat cancer, but with the help and support of the medical staff (too many to mention by name), I'm fully recovered now, although it has left me with a number of long lasting challenges. Not least a severe difficulty in eating many of my favourite and tastiest foods.

Over the years I’ve been contacted by many people, some with cancer, others with arthritis, dyslexia, depression, heart problems, autism and a raft of equally debilitating conditions, who all seem fine on the outside, but hide a disability on the inside nonetheless.

And so Hidden Disabilities was born and this is the reason for me writing to you today. I need help to raise awareness for the thousands of other people like me, who suffer in silence. You see, with your help and collaboration, together not only can we help fellow sufferers, but also hopefully change people's prejudices about hidden disabilities.

So please take just a few moments of your hectic day to consider how you might help change the life of someone with a hidden disability. I regularly run car boot sales and raffles to boost funds, so any products that your company that could offer would be much appreciated, or if you prefer, a simple cash donation would be equally well received and put to good use.

If you’d like to know more about Hidden Disabilities and the work I do, then please visit my website www.hiddendisabilities.moonfruit.com .

Thank you for reading this letter and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I would like to say a big thank you in advance

Kindest regards

Dennis Skidmore ( Chairman )
