    Hi all I've been thinking about this so long and so hard wether to ask for help but I know I would never be able to afford these items on my own.
    So here I am my name is Lee 6 years ago this may I had a accident that would change my life for ever. I had a 25ft beam jar me in my lower lumbar area. To be honest what follows was slightly a blur. I remember being taken to deriford hospital Plymouth the journey was long and the pain was unreal. Being in and out of consciousness they gave me a very strong muscle relaxant that scared the life out of me waking up to not be able to move from the neck down I thought the worst. but it was just a precaution to stop further damage. After many test scans investigation it sunk in I was paralysed from the waist down. I spent what seemed like forever in deriford before asking to be transford to be closer to family. I was transferred to Musgrove hospital where I underwent further investigation and was told that my diagnosis was unclear. But this didn't help I needed answers and the only real answer I had was from deriford hospital I was diagnosed with transverse myalitis. It was explained that my coating on my nerves where failing and sending mixed signals I would have head aches twitches spasms tremors. 6 years on many investigations a super pubic op to allow me to drain my bladder as it stopped working .hernia operation after putting my body through so much stress. And many stays in hospital I just want a normal life I'm used to the fact I'm going to be in a wheelchair and I will get worse over time but I don't want to stop enjoying life with my kids. Being a father and not being able to play football,take them on the beach,play around in the Forrest with them breaks my heart. So I'm asking please please anyone that can help me get these items so I can have a better quality life with my kids thank you so so much in advance yours sincerely Lee.
