I am a 34 year old disabled lady.
I have fibromyalgia, congenital heart defect and chronic fatigue/m.e.
Life is very challenging. I need help in every aspect of my life from showering to eating. I spend most of my life housebound. I am desperate to be able to get outside into the fresh air. To be able to 'walk' my little companion dog.
I have never known what 'normal' life is like. I was born with my heart defect, but the delay in diagnosing it led to improper care which in turn led to m.e and other health problems.
I suffer daily with pain, exhaustion and the indignity that these illnesses inflict on a person.
However, I desperately want to leave the house. I don't want to party or live the high life. What I want is to be able to go out into the countryside or go to the beach. I want to stop missing out on seeing my nieces and nephews growing up.
I still live with my retired parents. I am a huge burden on them and they cannot help me to fully finance this endeavour. They have had a sick child for the last 34 years. It has been extremely hard on them physically, emotionally and financially.
The wheelchair I have in mind is ' the terrain hopper' or something similar. (As shown in the photograph).
Many thanks for your help and to crowdfunder for the opportunity.
Take care everyone
