Char's Wheelchair Fund

£2,265 of £4,000 goal

Raised by 133 people in 2 months
hi!
I am 22 year-old raising money for a wheelchair. I am diagnosed with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (which comes under the EDS umbrella). It is a connective tissue disorder which causes my joints to dislocate regularly among other things. I also have issues with my heart-rate, digestive symptom, urinary system, fatigue, etc.
I am currently hoping for a manual wheelchair as a matter of urgency allowing me to get out more and aid in my university studies.
In the future I will be requiring a more customised power-chair (as I can not propel myself) so any money I recieve which doesn't go on the manual chair will go on that along with splins and other mobility aids I am in need of.
This diagnosis has been one that is very difficult to accept especially as it's degenerative. My quality of life is currently very low which is very tough as a young student with a thrive for life. A wheelchair would 100% improve that.
I am very grateful for anyone who takes the time to read this let alone anyone who can donate. Thank you.

Oh my goodness! I can not believe we are officially half way to a potential power chair - this is unbelievable. On top of that I was also donated some money via paypal which I have used for a walker! This is awesome as it helps on my tough days but I can use it for mid-days to a wheelchair as it's important to keep my muscle strength up as much as possible. I also have a back brace as my spinal dislocations are my worst and have been more common lately. These are already helping me so very much and I'll be getting my manual wheelchair when I'm at home for Easter and I am SO excited! Thank you so much to everyone who has and still in sharing and donating - it means the world. And an even bigger thank you to my darling friend Katie without which I would never have made this.

My original and main goal is 250 for a good manual chair.
But I was advised by some people to increase my goal to what I would need for a personalised wheelchair which I will require in the future on the off chance I could get it sooner.
As always ever penny counts and I am so incredibly grateful for everything.
