    Story

    Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is an uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness that gets worse over time. There is no cure for MND, but there are treatments and adaptions to a person’s home that can help reduce the impact it has on a person's daily life.

    Someone in our Star Wars Family Paul Wadley, known as Pedge, was recently diagnosed with the MND and as his condition is progressing. Pedge is staying positive and looking towards living and managing this condition, with help he make the necessary adaptations to his family home.

    Pedge, as some of you know, is an avid costumer and could be seen as the unflappable C3PO, in his fan made costume, all around the country attending both Weddings and events in one of the most difficult costumes to wear.

    Adaptions to homes come at a significant cost, while there are charities and grants available, they take time to process, are not available for everyone and there simply isn’t always enough money to help everyone.

    Currently Pedge can only access the front living room of his home that he shares with his Wife and two young sons. As Pedges condition has progressed he now needs to have a stair lift installed to allow him to remain independent and continue to be part of the family. He has recently had one installed and had to pay out of his own money, with savings and pension, so we as Droid Builders, Costume Groups and Star Wars fans are coming together to help one of our own.
