Fibromyalgia - is a condition that causes widespread pain all over the body. There are many other symptoms that can affect a person with Fibromyalgia: fatigue, muscle stiffness, difficulty sleeping, problems with mental processes (known as "fibro-fog"), depression, headaches and many more.
My Mum has suffered from fibromyalgia for as long as I can remember, which leaves her in constant pain that has rendered her housebound, as she can't walk any further than the end of our driveway. She currently owns a wheelchair and while this means she can go out, it is uncomfortable and due to her limited mobility she can not move herself. Therefore the only time she is able to get out anywhere is with the assistance of either me or my Dad.
The new wheelchair, will be specifically modified to suit her personal needs, it will give her the ability to get out and about by herself in comfort. The wheelchair, an MT Evo, has built in suspension providing her with comfort on all terrains, as well as easy steering and braking.
All I'm asking for is the chance to help give my Mum her life back, so any donation you can give will be extremely helpful and will mean so much, not only to me but to her as well. Thank You
