Weʼre raising £150,000 to fund Macy's specialised physio and rehabilitation
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On June 6th, I was involved in a life threatening car accident on my way back from university to celebrate my Dad’s birthday leaving me trapped in my car for hours until the emergency services could safely get me out where I underwent intensive medical care at the side of the road including, fixing my punctured lungs and trying to stop my bleeding after severing my main artery. This night left me with a survival rate of 2%, however thanks to the air ambulance and later on, Kings College Hospital where I underwent an initial 14 hours of life saving surgery, they stopped my bleeding. However I remained in a critical condition leaving me in a coma for my 20th birthday and for a period of 6 weeks. Being in this coma was not a smooth journey, I had several complications in theartre causing operations to be abandoned and blood clots leaving me with strokes on my brain. This meant they had to prematurely wake me from my induced coma. Although this process took weeks and the doctors were unsure what abilities I would wake up with or even if I would wake up I beat the odds and within a few weeks I was conscious and able to get taken off my ventilator. At this point I was allowed a speaking valve on for 15 minutes a day where I was able to take swabs of water and say one word at a time. Within 2 months my speech came back and my trachea/ speaking valve was allowed to be removed, allowing me to talk freely and eat a normal diet. Since then I have had to have my nasal gastric tube put back in, to pump my body full of proteins to fight infections and fix my broken bones. I am still unable to move but I am making leaps and bounds in my physio journey where I am just starting to slightly move my arms and my biggest achievement yet, being able to sit on the edge of the bed with the help of my physio. It is coming up to my sixth month in intensive care but I remain positive and I am looking into my future where rehab and physio are sure to be key. For this reason, I am setting this page up in hope to fund the best rehab possible and to adapt my house however is needed to give me the best chance of a full recovery and to live the life I deserve to live. Any donations however small will be majorly important and will quite literally change my life for the best. Thank you so much.
UPDATE PLEASE READ: Wow! This is incredible, I am so grateful for everyone that has shared and donated or even just read my story. Since starting this page I have done research into specialised rehabiliation centre that will be the best for me. Throughout my research I have been told a weeks stay is £12,885. I have also been told that I will require a minimum of a 3 months stay costing over £150,000. I am aware I am likely to require further physio which is likely to lead to further expenses but this is a big enough ask in itself, I know it‘s a shot in the dark and I don’t expect to raise this all, but I have to try. Again thank you all so much for your continued support, I will do every person that has donated proud and I will track my journey on my instagram @macywindow from bad days to good days to share with you all.
