Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm Pharmacist who was working in the field of researchs and development of drugs in Sigma pharmaceutical industry company In Egypt.
I were a young man who dreamed of living a normal life like anyone but predestination was on my way.
In 2012, I were injured in a serious car accident led to dislocation of D6 vertebra and complete cut in spinal cord led to paraplegia (paralysis down thoracic)
All my family, friends and colleagues did their best and supported me psychologically and financially in several surgical operations in Egypt (Orthopaedic Surgery) and China (Neurosurgery and Stem Cell Treatment )
This is the Chinese hospital page that describes my case.
Now, I am disabled and continue on rehabilitation therapy and totally dependent on a wheelchair in my whole life.
Imagine a lifetime of dependent on others in all daily activity especially since I almost live alone because my wife asked for a divorce and she got it and my mother is old.
I fought disability and got a master's degree in pharmaceutical science and plan to get a Ph.D.
I'm in desperate need of a power wheelchair with special specifications (Evo Lectus) and standing movable device (Granstand) - as shown in the images - to facilitate my transfer and my daily activity and improve the quality of my personal life and return to my work as independently as possible.
Please support in any way you can to help me live better.
Any donation - big or small - will go a long way in making my life easier and endurable.
