    Story

    Hello,

    I'm Zoe and I am trying to raise funds to the cost of living with multiple chronic illnesses. Thank you for reading, I appreciate the support, even if you only like or share my page I am so greatful.

    A lot of what I need to live independantly isn't NHS covered, my wheelchair, sticks, supports etc. are out of pocket. Although hopefully I will soon receive physio therapy. Some of the money raised will go towards travel costs to appointments, prescriptions and exo-skeletal brace supports; which act as the joint leaving the muscles to work rather than waste as with othe supports.

    I recently started having an type of siezure (after seeing a neurogist we have a possible diagnosis of Non epileptic attack disorder), which result in multiple severe dislocations in both minor and major joints occur during these attacks .

    After a siezure on November 3rd I have had to buy an exo skeleton type hip support due to a full hip dislocation. This was £159. The NHS solution is a lower body cast or surgery. My slow healing rate associated with severe Hypermobility disorder makes surgery a last resort. Should surgery become my only option, I would be out of action for months.

    Being in a wheelchair means I loose the muscle structure which keeps my joints stable, physiotherapy and joint supports such as my exo-skeleton allow me to lead a normal life outside of a wheelchair. I fight daily to not be fully wheelchair bound and always use a stick or walking aid. Exo-skeletal supports are expensive, but will transform my life if I can raise the funds for more than one type of brace.

      So NHS occupational therapy went well, the cost of travel was covered by you generous people, as was the cost of 3 size 2 Oval 8 splints for my fingers to help straighten/ stabilise them, as Lincoln County hospital only stock down to size 3, and my little fingers are too small. Without your help I would not have been able to spend £50+ on splints. I am grateful for everyone who's given support. I have private physio again Saturday as my NHS appointments are still far away. Thank you again and I will keep you all updated on my progress! 💙
