My name is Chris Vickery. My wife, Clare Vickery was diagnosed with ALS (Motor Neurone Disease) just before Christmas last year. ALS s a progressive, terminal, neurological condition that is suffered by only 2000 people in Australia. There is no effective treatment, and no cure. Average life expectancy is 27 months... but my wife is sure she is above average!
Since Christmas we've raised several thousand dollars for the NSW Motor Neuron Disease association to contribute to research and support for sufferers and their families, but several friends have asked that we set up a page so that they can assist us directly.
Clare's mobility and speech have reached a point that work is no longer feasible. I'll be reducing my hours to accommodate caring for her and our two children, aged 3 and 5.
We hope we’ll be soon able to access superannution and so should have some funds available to help support us during this time but at the same time appreciate any support. We will need to move to a more accessible home as soon as possible, which may still need modifications. Please know your support will be very gratefully received.
