Help Scott walk again.

£19,780 of £30,000 goal

Raised by 150 people in 48 months
My brother Scott who is 21, was recently involved in a serious motor cross accident. We received a call telling us he was being airlifted to the nearest hospital. When we got there we were told that the outlook didn't look very good for him to walk again. He sustained 5 broken bones in his back, a fractured sternum, and fractured neck, broken ribs and a punctured lung. He was taken straight to the Neuro Intensive Care unit where he had to have a nurse caring for him 24/7. He remained in Neuro Intensive Care for 2 weeks, where he also underwent major spinal surgery to reposition his spine with metal bolts.
He still has another 3 weeks in hospital which will take him up to 6 weeks in total and after his time here he will have to go to a Rehabilitation centre for 6 months to adjust and learn how to live with the loss of feeling in his legs. He has a very long road ahead of him and in turn will be a very costly one.
We are trying to raise as much money as we possibly can. As technology is improving we want to be able to give him the chance to have surgery that could potentially let him walk again.
My bother is an amazing guy. He is loving and caring and he doesn't deserve this. Before his accident he had just learnt to drive and had a good job. Now he is looking at his future in a completely different way. To be able to give him the opportunity to walk again is more than words could ever explain. Not only just the surgery, but the costs of equipment and treatment that a paraplegic needs is overwhelming.
I am asking from the bottom of my heart that even if it is just £1 you can donate that would be amazing. My brother is young and deserves to have the best life possible. As his family we are willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.

SCOTT GERRED FUNDRAISING CYCLE
430 MILES, 2 DAYS, MIZEN TO MALIN

Gerry Boots and 11 other cyclists are taking part in a fundraising cycle from Mizen Head Cork to Malin Head Donegal, 9th/10th September 2016

We are taking to the road again to cover 430 miles in 2 days for a very special young man, Scott Gerred 24 years old, who has encountered a life changing event which has led to him being paralysed from the chest down

We are trying to raise as much as we can to help Scott with his treatment which is £135.00 an hour and means he can't afford to go as much as he needs and wants. If you can help it would be great, it's for a very worthwhile cause.
Every donation will be a great help,
