Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Cataract in both eyes. This may deny me a chance to serve or take part in challenging and extreme sporting events and other activites which I love and my outdoor lifestyle can be seriously limited
In addition I am an avid computer user. also provide IT services and solutions as a business. increasingly reading on computer screens particularly smart devices is challenging.
Driving is one of my passions and this may also be affected in bright sunshine or at night with a glare from on coming cars. It means I would need to wear glasses or contact lenses both of which have their own challenges like getting lost or forgotten, breaking or damage, replacement cost etc
NHS UK has a long waiting list and provides as standard the mono focal IOL replacement surgery
So from my research indicates Poland to be the best in Cataract surgery and Lithuania for LASIK/LASEK eyesight correction surgery. I would really like to go to Poland for the cataract surgery as soon as possible. Though my lifestyle and work is not currently impaired, I need to do this sooner than later.
I need to raise the funds to pay for flight, hotel accommodation, food, the actual surgery, pre-post surgery support. I plan for a 2 week stay first week for the ops and second week for post op follow up and support by the experts whilst in Poland
Enjoy outdoor, extreme and challenging sporting and related activities, drive day or night safely and joyfully, ditch the glasses and contact lenses, play with my children anywhere any time
I promised myself to do one extreme sporting event for charity, one particular event is running a 5K marathon for any charity dealing with brain atrophy or related conditions.
Thank you for your consideration and welcome any supportive comments you might have
