Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Hi my name is Joe Kemp I have a disability called Duchenne muscular dystrophy it's a condition that courses muscle weakness over time.
I've been helped by special effects over the last couple of years. The first time they helped me I was finding it very difficult to use my computer because of my disability they came to assess what I needed and they knew what I needed instantly and they lent me the equipment I needed until I got my own. The second time they helped me I was wanting to get back to playing video games so they came to assess what would be best for me. This was harder than the first time for them to solve but they managed to get me playing games on my computer and now they are trying to get me back playing video games on the PlayStation.
So on Friday the 22nd of February I'm doing a 12 hour gameing marathon to raise money for special effects because I know what a big difference they make to young disabled people's lives
