Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
On the 4th of August 2016Matthew cook and his little princess darcy were spending the day together on what seemed like any other "daddy daughter" day .when a horrific event would change both there lives forever Matthew took Ill at the wheel of his BMW car in 30mph zone and passed out we still don't know the cause of this , he seemingly accelerated whilst unconscious and the car went out of control and went under the back wheels of a lorry both received life threatening injuries and were not expected to make the night! It's been 3 months since this horrific event and darcy has defied medical science she's doing amazingly, but her daddy is in for a very long road to recovery !what ever that may be only time will tell ! He's making small steps little movements eyes tracking people , he even smiled at my shit story's and jokes !! This put a lump in my throat so big I felt like I was chocking ! So I thought I'd try and get a thumbs up from him , I told him if he did I'd buy him a car when he's out of hospital !!! He fought hard for a moment putting his thumb down !! Then after encouragement he put it up and smiled !! I now need to raise him funds for a car ! Now here's the thing Matty could and I pray he does make a decent recovery!!! Then we can buy him a decent second hand car!! But if he needs a specialist car ie wheel chair accesss/ career person to drive him !! Basically Matty gets a new car either way !! The money is solely for him so when the time comes he can have transport weather it be that daddy daughter time or a hospital appointment ment lets get Matty mobile !!! Please give what you can !!
