Sammy's Wheels of Freedom!

£4,757 of £15,000 goal

Raised by 131 people in 11 months
I never imagined I would raise the total I needed so soon, a local charity The League of Friends of Brampton Community Hospital have kindly agreed to donate the rest of the money I need to be able to buy my new wheelchair!!!

It has been over a year since my family & I started concentrating on raising funds for my wheelchair but I thought I would have to wait many years more, I am still in shock I will be getting my wheelchair so soon but I am incredibly exited! :D

Thank you to everyone who has donated raised funds, shared & taken an interest in my journey to gaining my much needed wheelchair.

It is such a boost to know that 2017 is going to be the year I can independently leave my house. :)

The wheelchair supplier Cumbria Mobility & I are getting everything finalized & then my order is going through. Once I have the new wheelchair my quality life in my house & garden will greatly increase, then I will be able to test out Motability vehicles & order one. Soon I will be able to go on trips into my local town of Brampton & my local city Carlisle.

Please also follow my Facebook Page & Twitter Page for more information, recent updates & upcoming photos of me in my new wheelchair. :)
I am now working on another page concentrating on raising funds for specialist private medical treatment which is not available on the NHS.  Now I will be able to leave my house, I want to try all the medication I can to improve my autonomic dysfunction (so I am well enough to socialize, shower daily, read books, eat & drink regular volumes, draw & do art like I used to, do more physio, go on trips & generally be able to do more for myself) & do as much as I desperately want to.
With medication like octreotide I might be able to actually eat a meal in a restaurant, something I have not been able to do for 6 years now. I want to make me as well as possible so I can make the most of my new wheelchair... & make the most of my life.
So please follow my social media for more updates...

With my new wheelchair I will be gaining the independence I have longed for, I can go to places other than just hospitals on a stretcher in an ambulance. My mind is literally racing thinking of all the places I want to go & contemplating all of the opportunities that have opened up to me. My quality of life & happiness are both increasing solely because of the hard work of my mum & the generosity of other people. I am enormously grateful.

This week I have my final fitting with the wheelchair suplier & then the order is going through. Once I have the chair my quality life in the house will greatly increase, then I will be able to try motability vhicles & then oder one, then be able to go on trips into my local town Brampton & local city Carlisle. I have already planned where I want to go & it is such a boost to know that 2017 is going to be the year I can leave my house. :)

Batman came to visit me at home!
Since getting so ill I have not been able to read books, so started to read comics & I have always loved Superheroes films, the fact that real life Superheroes are helping me is perfect:) I want to thank Barry Henderson & Cumbria Superheroes for helping raise awareness & funds for me.
There are more photos of Batman & how they are helping me on my facebook page...
