As you may know on Jan 23rd 2018 I was involved in an accident resulting in a fractured pelvis, cracked ribs and multiple bruising. I was hospitalised for 10 days and I have been in recovery/rehab since. I am very lucky to be alive.
At the time of the accident a public fundraising page was very kindly set up, that raised over $6500 dollars in only 3 days. Though I was deeply moved by the reaction and support, I could not accept the funds. I stopped it and refunded all donations. It was too early, I wasn’t clear what my situation would be. I was VERY grateful but I wasn’t comfortable.
Now its a little over one month since the incident and I thank you all for bearing with me. Now the reality of my situation is becoming clearer. Physical, mental, financial and practical. Fact is, things are tough and I need to get over my pride and ‘I can do it all myself’ attitude and accept your offers of help.
I am determined for something positive to result from this accident. For that to happen I am setting up this new fundraiser to continue my physical rehabilitation and to further my movement studies in order to help others overcome physical challenges. I was already passionate about movement through my dance teaching, performing and Pilates workshops and classes but now I have a clearer idea which other methodologies and avenues I would love to pursue to broaden my abilities.
There are trainings and certifications I have in mind but I do not have the finances to cover. There are travel, accommodation and child care costs to consider too. If you know me personally you will know I find it difficult to ask for help, however I feel the knowledge gained could help others and that feels like a positive result.
This fund is a more private way for me to reach out to you. I have chosen not to put details of my current situation on here, if you would like to talk more, feel free to message me privately.
Thank you so much for your support, your words and love from all over the world. You are getting me through this.
