As you are most probably a friend or family member I will be as brief as possible. I'm a 24 year old suffering with an undiagnosed illness for 12 years. I have chronic pain resulting in me being in a lot of pain on a daily basis, struggling to walk & having to use a walking stick or a wheelchair.
I'm on very strong pain killers & various medications (yes I do rattle), which messes with my head, masks the problem & doesn't take the pain away.
My life is very limited as I have been unable to finish university (was 1 months away from finishing), can't work, need a carer to look after me & I just can't live my life, all due to this illness. The consequences of this have affected my life completely. I can't plan or do anything on a daily basis as the pain comes on out of the blue sometimes, resulting in yet more hospital admissions over the years only for me to be pumped full of morphine, told it might be bowel cancer, appendicitis, (as well as numerous others) sent home & left to deal with the aftermath still not knowing what's actually wrong.
I've FINALLY found a surgeon 2 days ago, who is willing to help by surgically investigating & removing my appendix. As we all know nothing in life is free & the cost of this surgery is £3955 & is due to take place on 6/3/14.
This surgery could give me a chance at a new life & potentially help to find the cause of 12 years of pain & fighting a ghost.
It would mean the absolute world to me to get this chance, so ANY donations would be greatly appreciated, it can be as much or as little as you can afford, the gesture alone would mean so much & any amount is helpful. I can't even begin to express just how grateful I would feel. If you support me & my cause please donate & share with friends & family.
Thank you so much for reading this, if you would like to be kept in touch with what's going on then feel free to contact me & I'll keep you in the loop.
All my love
