£1,185raised of £5,000 target by 30 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,185 to help fund a new electric wheelchair and raise awareness for Friedreich's Ataxia!

    Funded on Monday, 9th October 2017

    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.


    My name is Kieran and I suffer from a disability called Friedreich’s Ataxia it’s a debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuromuscular disorder. About one in 50,000 people suffer from Friedreich’s Ataxia, I've had this condition for 10years.

    For those who know me, you will know that I NEVER ask for money or donations and I very rarely ask for help, but now I'm asking for some help!

    I got diagnosed at 16 and I had a back operation and metal rods were put in my back at 16. So in the space of a few years my life had a drastic change, I went to being a normal young lad looking forward to the future to facing massive struggles.

    This page is to raise money for a new electric wheelchair that I so desperately need. Electric wheelchairs are not cheap and I need some extra functions that a basic wheelchair does not provide.

    The type of electric chair I need will help me be more independent, hopefully help the pain/discomfort I suffer and also increase my quality of life.
    All the add ons/extras come at a ridiculous cost, for something which should be provided. I didn't ask for this disability, I just need some help, so I can make the best of a bad situation.

    I have bad days, but rarely do I become fed-up! I think in 10years I've dealt with a lot and now I can deal with anything, I will always be here to help people as well. I just don't like being in a wheelchair, it's ruined a lot for me and its also made me gain amazing people in my life, so a more practical chair that helps my needs would help a long way.

    I am planning to do a skydive with my support worker, she has supported me a lot and is one of my favourite people I've met in my life, she is always willing to talk and help me if I have any struggles and because of this she is supporting me to raise money. Doing this with her is something I will never forget.

    Thank You for donating, even if you spread the word of the disease and charity you have helped.

    Please donate, EVERY LITTLE HELPS!
