Campaign to fund the purchase of a mobile medical facility/horsebox -

16yr old Evie was born with spina bifida that affects her bladder/bowel and lower leg function. More recently she has developed gastroparesis (paralysed stomach) requiring pump feeding via a nasal tube into the intestine; bypassing her stomach.
"My complex health issues have become increasingly difficult to manage away from home as I don't always have access to appropriate facilities. My aim is to purchase and adapt a suitable vehicle into a medical facility/horsebox. This will enable me to cope with all my ongoing treatments, procedures and  medical issues efficiently, in a sterile and safe enviroment wherever I am.  Additionally, I can continue  visiting schools to educate children and cope with the complications my conditions bring  everyday,  wherever I go."

"My two passions are horse riding and educating  children on hidden disabilities. Over the past 3 years I've visited primary and secondary schools, giving assemblies to educate many young children on hidden illnesses whilst also sharing my own story  to hopefully inspire others to 'Find a way, not an excuse!'   -My lifelong motto.

Alongside giving talks to schools I've worked with Nottingham University, speaking to student nurses about my conditions and treatments whilst also writing and blogging for medical companies, openly sharing my experiences to help others like me. My aim is to reach and help as many people as I can of all ages; with help, advice and support.

I'm also lucky enough to horse ride and compete in able bodied and para showjumping competitions, this year I was selected to compete for teamGB in Munich, where my wonderful horse Daisy and I placed 3rd. Riding gives me the fuel to keep fighting when I'm in hospital or struggling, having a focus and passion has been my reason to
Find a way, not an excuse.

This type of vehicle can cost approximately £100,000 (depending on the age) we already have  donations of £23,000. We are aiming  to buy as new a vehicle as possible.
Thankyou x
