Weʼre raising £27,000 to help my mum walk again by raising enough money for a bionic leg after losing hers to necrotizing fasciitis.

After having years of problems such as lymphedema and septisemia she spent more time in hospital than she did at home, missing out on Christmas, birthdays and other special occasions.
In 2015 my mum lost her leg to necrotizing fasciitis and nearly her life. She spent months in hospital and in pain. After losing her leg she tried to become more mobile however, the prosthetic leg the government provides was not suitable for her as the bone has been shaved on a angle and hurts to apply pressure. She also suffers with many other health issues, one of which being fibromyalgia therefore straps like seatbelts attached to a stiff limb only adds to her pain. (No offence to the NHS, it just didn't suit her needs.) I would give anything to see my mum walk again but unfortunately £27,000 is well out of our budget. She is only 46 and has been pretty much bedridden since 2013. If anyone could help me try and raise the funds and get her some form of a life back id be very appreciative. She is a caring, brave, strong woman with plenty more to do in her life if she had the ability. She suffers with depression and she always says to me, "Stacey I just want to do my housework", that is my mam all over. She wants to be able to live her life for herself instead of watching others around do it for her and with people's help it can be achieved. Thank you for reading.
