    Story

    Within a space of 6 months, I lost my eyesight, my career in the army, and my career as a nurse. I lost my identity and every time I looked at my past achievements I felt like a fraud, as I could no longer do the things I was qualified for. I had no purpose, to the extent of questioning my existence.

    Through the Battle Back Centre and the Royal British Legion (RBL) I regained confidence to step out of my comfort zone, and put myself out there to do adaptive sports.

    I am proud to have been selected to compete with Team GB at this years Invictus Games in Dusseldorf.

    I have gained a family through the RBL and the Invictus Games, and could not be more proud of myself for how far I have come, and to now be chosen for the Invictus Games 2023.

    In order to compete in my chosen sports I need a specialist wheelchair to allow me to move between my sports equipment as well as being a lightweight item that I can easily travel with. This specialist chair will help with my independence as I am able to manoeuvre it by myself.

      Just got woken up by a very excited friend, who was crying. Then broke the news!! . . . WE HAVE HIT MY TARGET!! I am getting my wheelchair! It feels surreal, the whole journey has just been jaw droppingly amazing. I have learnt SO much and albeit through texts or social media, I have met amazing people who did not know me from a bar of soap! YET, opened up their hearts toward me with love, support and generosity! Every encouraging message has been keeping me on track and focussed remembering 'WHY'. (Why I'm on this journey). Love you all!

      I went, I conquered and can happily report. . . I’m still alive albeit quite sore! My swimming times have improved I had my best swimming to date and I am SO proud of how far I have come. Daisy was a legend and kept me calm before each swim and after. My electric scooter got soaked and the battery was wet which was a problem afterwards and it created some struggles. I really cannot wait to have my new wheelchair. Thank you SO much for everyone’s support. Martha and Daisy 🥰🐾

      Early start to our day! 07:00 am and we were both in the gym! Daisy was cheering me on from the side line whilst lounging on my mobility scooter. 😜 (Princess. . . 🐾) We are over half way with raising the funds for my wheelchair, and I am SO grateful! Please keep sharing and spreading the word. Can’t believe we start travelling for the Games on the 6th of September! Time is flying by! Swimming tomorrow morning with a small weights session then my last training camp in London. Thank you for everyone’s support so far on my journey. Xx
