Weʼre raising £3,600 to fund a new wheelchair that will enable myself to become mobile, and become involved with community based help

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 have been disabled for over 4 years now, and have been using a wheelchair for two and a half years. I am terminally ill with stage 2 COPD, i slso suffer with an inoperable spinal injury. I have chronic pulmonary hyoertendion, and recently diagnosed with chronic thromoeolic disease that is also terminal..
i have had to rely on a wheelchair more and more as ive deteriorated over the last two years. Due to a flesh eating bacteria and chronic dvt ive been almost immobile since october 2017
I apologis for the graphic conten of the pictures, but it dhows best the struggle i have daily even leaving the house. The wheelchair i first bought has broken due to my weight.
Im so desperate to start a more intense physio programme , and also just to be able to push myself around in a chair that will make that possible for me to have some independence again. That in turn will help my mental health too.
Ive never been lazy , ive never been a quitter either. Hiwever my current position is making it extremely hard for me to live what little life i have left.
please help me to help myself
Yours Sincerely ,

About the fundraiser
Once I’ve got myself in a more mobile position I’ll be starting a website that I’m currently building to help others in my situation to help themselves. Many people I’ve spoken to don’t even know how to fill in the forms for PIP, or ESA payments. I will be offering free help
