Please help me get a mobility scooter.
Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

Last year I was diagnosed with a spinal compression. With irreparable damage to my spinal cord. I have limited mobility and use of hands.

In 2023 I went to the doctor with pins & needles in my hands. I then started to get electric shocks through the right side of my body. After several falls & hospital visits they found I had a compression on my spinal cord doing irreversible damage. I have had a spinal fusion, which is a metal cage put into my neck. I will not get any better but will prevent me getting permanently paralysed.

I have nerve damage in both hands with loss of feeling and limited use of them. I can still do things for myself, but can no longer do my job. 

PIP have given me standard mobility because although j cannot walk very far, I can still plan s journey myself. 

This means I do not get help purchasing a mobility scooter although I will not have to pay tax on one. Please help me raise funds to get one. I currently rarely leave the house. This will be life changing and helping me get out and about and keep making memories with my little girl. 

At the moment my son picks her up from school he is 19 and wants to get a job and start making his own plans. I don't want him held back because of me. Please help xx
