Story

I am a right sided arm and leg amputee. I have had cerebral palsy since birth and have always struggled but it has deteriorated in last 2 years drastically after a failed rebuild of my leg, I had to have it amputated. I have a basic prosthetic limb, l can wear for a limited time before it becomes uncomfortable and have to revert back to my wheelchair. I am only able to walk short distances in my current limb, and unable to go up even the smallest incline without the right components . I live in Devon and surrounding by inclines even in towns so I am struggling to get out and about. I wish to live a more active life as I am only 46, married with 3 children and wish to do normal everyday activities with my wife and children. To go on days out and go away, to go and see friends and stay over. To walk my dogs. Just to go for a walk would be lovely. I want to have lead a more active lifestyle, not be stuck in doors everyday. I want to be able to go back to work and support my family and to even play a sport as I used to play football and loved the feeling of being part of something. This is why I am crowdfunding to provide myself with a better more active life to feel part of the human race instead of sat around rotting. I hope to raise enough money so I can purchase a better agility leg and articulating foot so I can get out and about and live a normal more active life.
