Story

Hi my name is Kirstie, ive been dislocating and joints sublaxating since i was young, my ribs, elbow, shoulder, knees , hips and jaw all either dislocate or sublaxate. last year i was stood talking to someone when i fell to the floor, my hip had totally dislocated, with my leg turning round and going out my back.

Since this happened i have been diagnosed with generalised dystonia ( a brain disorder) and they believe i may have ehlers danlos (still awaiting a consultants appointment).

I went from walking unaided last year to full time either walking with crutches or using A wheelchair, but im limited to what i can do in a manual wheelchair and self propelling and using crutches is causing instability of my joints.

I have raised £9500 from various grants and some of it by saving, but am still short by £1350 to buy a trekenetic gte wheelchair.

This chair will really transform my families lives, we will beable to go to the beach, i can join my family on walks with the dogs and do simple things like take my children into school to their classrooms.

I love raising money for charities, last year i did a sponsored horse ride to raise money for a defribrillator for our local RDA centre which i was a trustee for. I finished the ride with 2 semi dislocated knees, but the centre now has a defribrillator.

Please if you can help me raise funds to help me continue to do charity fundraising (signed up for sponsored swin next year), and to live a normal family life i would be extremely grateful.
