Ruth Lewis is a friend of ours. She lives in Llanelli and is an artist and tutor. Since birth, Ruth has suffered from 'Treacher-Collins Syndrome'. This is a condition that affects growth of the facial bone structure and sensory organs. Ruth spent a lot of her childhood at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London having essential operations. This has carried on thoughout her adult life also. She has now reached a stage where the NHS is unable to continue her treatment for financial reasons. An essential operation is currently needed and Ruth has to finance this herself along with paying her bills during a recovery period. Ruth is keen to continue her work and day to day life but this is becoming more difficult due to the discomfort that she is in. We would like to see Ruth having this operation which will only enhance her quality of life and wellbeing and enable her to continue working. Therefore, we, her friends have decided to help Ruth by donating ourselves and we hope you would also consider helping this just cause.
