My name is Lucinda I am 44 and a stroke survivor.wheelchair. I am hoping to raise enough money to pay for a consultation with an eminent neurologist at Stanford University, so my appeal is factoring the cost of flights, accommodation for myself and my husband, the cost of consultation including further brain scans and potential treatment including any rehabilitation needs once I am there. I am hoping to raise enough to also purchase the innovative Honda assistive walking device to allow me greater freedom from the limitations of a wheelchair This would improve my quality of life 100% . The remainder of the money I am hoping to fund another stroke survivor to have full blocks of treatment from an ARNI trainer. These sessions cost £45 per hour and are extremely effective and I would like to fund a survivor for at least a year. I know that I struggle to fund my own program and have only been able to through the generosity of family. I have always paid my taxes and, whilst I am eternally grateful that the ‘system’ caught me I do not want to be reliant on benefits and I wish to return to employment and return to be a fully contributing member of society again. Furthermore, I wish to return to university in the hope of gaining my Master’s in healthcare education and complete a post graduate qualification in vocational rehabilitation, something that I am ideally suited for but am unable to fund. I am not greedy. I simply wish to provide for my family and be a valuable member of society once more.
