Rachel is now at the point of almost bankrupting herself to fund her surgery privately as she can't tolerate another 18 months of pain waiting for a hip replacement on the nhs. Having been in constant pain for the last 3 years, delayed diagnoses and mismanagement she is now unable to sleep, drive far or even bend down to put her own shoes on. She has been forced to put her 12 month old baby into childcare all day as she is unable to lift, carry or bend to perform most of his care herself and has next to no local support. At a time when she should be in her prime and enjoying motherhood she is instead in agony with a poor quality of life and deteriorating mental health waiting for a hip replacement at 34 years of age.
I hope we can raise enough money to fund her 1st hip replacement and cover the cost of her post op rehab and restore her quality of life and give her son his mum back
