    Weʼve raised £772 to help my son get an electric wheelchair. He suffers from Marfan Syndrome and hyper joint mobility which is very painful.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    My son Gary Cooper is 28 yrs old. He was born with Marfan Syndrome which means that he doesnt have the full percentage of connective tissue in his body called fibrilin. This causes all kinds of health problems. He also has Joint Hyper mobility which means that his joints dislocate regularly and painfully. The doctors have told him that any combination of pain tablets will not help him.

    Gary has also been told that because he doesnt need wheelchair in his small flat they cannot help him.

    Gary is qualified entomologist teacher who would like to return to work but needs a wheelchair and get his pain on track before he can look at going back to work.

    Can you help by giving donation so this young man can once again get back into society. It would be a blessing.

    Seeing Gary in pain everyday is awful. We are hoping to get him a wheelchair so he can have a life and get out into the community and back to work.
