Target: £25,000 over 18 months.

In December 2021, Veronica was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as MND, (Motor Neurone Disease), having been aware that “something was wrong” for the previous 12 months or so.

It has taken over 12 months to receive a final diagnosis. For those that may not be aware, ALS is life-shortening, as there is no cure. It is a degenerative disease and as such, her condition can only, sadly, deteriorate. The only “treatment” available is concerning the quality of life as this awful disease progresses.

Each and every day since her diagnosis, Veronica has put on a brave face, accepting that it is what it is. We have had many messages saying they didn’t realise how sick Veronica is and that’s because she hides everything so well behind that smile, sense of humour, and determination to just carry on as best as possible.

Veronica never complains and tries her best to live life to the full, still pottering around the house and seeing friends as usual.

The target collection amount we have published considers help over a two-year period.

We are raising funds to enable regular physical palliative care, saving for the inevitable mobility equipment, and other general quality of life assistance. The difficulty securing work leaves us also raising funds to help with maintaining a modest roof over our heads, and the minimal associated living expenses that go with it.

Alan, Veronica’s husband, has been unable to work for some years now, suffering heart problems himself, following a heart attack a few years ago. He does do what he can, when he can, to help, but this can never replace the benefits of full-time work. It is also inevitable that he will increasingly become Veronica’s full-time carer in any case.

There is no treatment to reverse damage to motor neurons or cure ALS. However, treatments can help control symptoms, prevent unnecessary complications, and make living with the disease easier.

Supportive health care is best provided by multidisciplinary teams of professionals such as physicians; pharmacists; physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapists; nutritionists; social workers; clinical psychologists; and home care nurses.

Any help will make a difference and will be very appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to visit our page.
