.New Years day 2015, she fell down the stairs and broke 3 vertebrae's in her back, She had to have a chip in her heart to monitor her heart rate. She had this removed september 2017.
Which brings me to why i am doing this fund raising in August 2017 my mom was diagnosed with Lipoedema and is in constant pain, she finds it very hard to walk. While looking in to treatments for this as it is a long term chronic illness i realised that the best option she would have would be liposuction on the areas most affected. To my utter disgust this can not be done on the NHS as they deem it to be cosmetic related. Therefore i am reaching out to you all to please ask you to help me in raising this money to help my mom with every day living. She has recently became a nan to my son who is now walking and running around a lot he is 20 months, she finds it very hard to play with him and take him parks and do those things that nan's should be able to do. I thank you for your time and support in this matter
