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.
I was a healthy young lady of 36 when i was diagnosed with a brain tumor called an Acustic Neauroma. I had to wait 9 months before they could operate and remove the bulk of the mass which i still have about 10% of it remaining but have to have regular scans to check its growth and movement ect.
I am partially blind in my right eye and am also deaf in right too, i have attaxia which makes my musscles weak and have facial paralysis. As a result of this i am in constant joint and muscle pain and find that the riding helps me enourmously.
I also suffer with depression and being around horses is my salvation and makes me get out of bed and gives me a purpose in life.
After the original operation I was in a wheelchair as I couldn't walk, i also couldn't talk properly, eat and feed myself i drank with a straw and even use my hands all of which I now have use but it is limited. I get vey tired so need the support of the Ridding for Disabled group as can not do this on my own but they can not fund me
