Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. The fundraiser may be over but there is still plenty of time to donate to this wonderful and worthwhile cause!
The aim of the fundraiser and of this page is to raise money for another Delta Chair for use on the Acute Stroke Unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Back at the end of April my wonderful father and grandad to my two young daughters, suffered a massive heart attack, quickly followed by a stroke. He was rushed to hospital via ambulance where he was met and treated by an incredible team of consultants, doctors and nurses. The following day he suffered multiple seizures and was transferred to the ITU where he was heavily sedated and assisted to breathe. He was not expected to recover. However, here we are, 24 weeks on and he has finally returned home. The rehabilitation he received during his stay on the Acute Stroke Unit, Gunthorpe Ward, was second to none. After being told that he would be lucky to pull through, let alone return home, we are all amazed by the incredible progress he has made. Since being back in his own space, he has continued to make incredible progress, to the point that I think even the NNUH team would be amazed!
Anything you can spare, no matter how large or small, will be greatly appreciated. Recently, members of the unit's care team took time out of their busy working lives to climb Mount Snowden, in order to raise funds to buy a much needed Delta Chair. These incredible people never cease to amaze me. Help me to show some gratitude to them by pitching in to buy another piece of life changing equipment.
