Story

♫.´ ♡★ ☆ Please send! & Give! L❀Vε ! ♫.´ ♡★ ☆

Once upon a time in the enchanted land of Kimberly there dwelt a beautiful firestarting rainbow pixie. This captivating harlequin danced and twirled, entertained and amused the other magical beings that played and loved there. Sparks flew and flames burned.

He made wood sculptures in the shape of a giant heart, dangerously magnificent, and set them on fire to light the way. He walked on stilts across the land and in the dungeons. He lit the huge celebratory bonfires by shooting flaming arrows from lofty heights while dressed in flowing purple furs amongst the wanton revelers.

One day tragedy struck and this giant amongst men, this rainbow warrior, was in a traffic accident so bad he should have died. Most of his body was crushed and his brain was dashed upon the tarmac of the M11. Eons in hospital followed as he struggled to break the surface back into life but full recovery was not to be his. Although his body was partially pieced back together, his brain was left in fragments. The brain damage changed his personality and robbed his memory and he became difficult, petulant and angry as he tried to stitch his life back together.

A life of confusion followed, trying to remember the images and magical moments, of being part of a family of sparkly beings who had joyful gatherings and days of laughter. He started to fade physically and fade mentally, further and further from the fun and good fellowship of the tribe and he was almost forgotten.

Then a shining star called Twinkle tracked him down in an unremarkable room in a nursing home, still a young man, wheelchair bound, no longer able to care for himself, physically unable to join the party, lost in the depths of a profound and quiet loneliness This is our charming fire starting wizard today - not suitable for a psychiatric hospital nor the old people’s home, between the cracks, running out of light.

Nik is in desperate need of mental and physical assessments to find out what his needs are and to get the right treatment, having never been treated for his trauma from the crash 8 years ago, and ending up in the wrong care home for him. His family are unsupportive and have pretty much left him to it, not visiting and keeping his now 16 yr old daughter away from him. He has only been in a wheel chair for a year and is deteriorating due to poor nourishment, not receiving the right treatment, lack of love, and feeling so abandoned. We need funds to get him assessed properly privately, to fight his legal case, get him an unlocked iPhone so he can connect with the outside world again, a motorised wheelchair, transport to take him to and from swimming, and to and from the odd party where we want to rehabilitate him through connection and music...LOVE!

Nik is very with it, very funny... and brain damaged and paranoid. We need to get him out more, doing more 'normal' things and help him build a new life outside the care home.

Please help us get him the help and support he needs, and the compensation he deserves, so we can give him a LIFE worth living! Thank you. <3

    Thank you everyone for your donations so far. We have just used some of the funds (£895) to pay for Nik to have a private OT assessment, recommendation of the CCG commissioner who is now supporting us in getting through the system to get Nik the care he needs and wants asap! His safeguarding issue is urgent so the report should help us. Nik is eternally grateful for the support we are giving him and all your donations. Please keep sharing. We are going to need more for his legal case. Thank you. <3

    After a quiet Xmas & NY Nik is back in touch. We have found the perfect rehab centre / care home for him, we just need funding as its not cheap, so onto Social Services but not sure they will cover the whole £2300/week. We are also cracking on with building his legal case which also requires funds so please donate & share. Nik was blown away by the new care facility & possibilities for receiving treatment & care. He even made a friend in there with a music producer, who's sense of humour is very similar to Nik's &made him laugh within 30 secs!!

I'm one of the party community. I'd never met Nik until I read this post about him on our FB page. He's only 25 mins away so I went to visit him. After an 18yr battle, I had just completed building my house & invited him to the housewarming. He had the best time! I want to help.
