My name is Amanda Lockhart,
Disabled and Homeless.
On July 22nd, 2014, my mother Cherie Lockhart had a horrific and truamatically disabling accident after she fell off her horse, Beau, leaving my beautiful mum fighting for her life at Liverpool Hosptial, ICU. Mum sustained a serious brain truama, a fracture in the back of her skull, a shattered cheek bone, swelling and harsh bruising which they performed a decompressive craniectomy of the brain along with two minor spinal injuries leaving her a tetraplegic with minimal communication and physical skills. She has been lucky to have survived the whole ordeal and was in a coma for three months, and entered Brain Injury Rehabiliation Unit on the 15/09/2014 and has been receiving ongoing physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and alternative therapy's and needs immense amounts of support, love and strength to try and rehabilitate her to the best she can be. Sadly, Cherie is receiving treatment and responding minimally and will have to have her needs met ongoing.
Cherie is now placed in a Disability Support Home in the Westmead district and we are still working to achieve our goal of helping Cherie speak again.
This is we call for your love, support and small donation in Cherie's and I's time of need, as equipment, medication and supportive accommodation bills are very costly.
I am here to raise money and awareness to our very extrodinary circumstance. Please help my mum, Cherie Lockhart.
My mother Cherie Lockhart and I have lived together all our lives. Cherie has always been an active single parent always striving and battling the uphill challenge of raising a little girl on her own and the costs of modern living. We have a mother daughter bond like no other, she is my best friend and my hero always sacrificing endless amounts of time and energy working just to keep things on track, we have always had each other to strive and survive off! Mum is one of the most caring, beautiful mothers on this earth, always greeting friends with a smile and a quirky comment, a gasbag, a chuckle and a cuddle! Anyone who knows and has ever met her, through friends, family or work knows how brilliant, intelligent, loving, caring, strong, friendly and bubbly she truely is, and anyone who knew her, knew what a bond we have and how much we'd depend on each other.
No matter what she still seems to have the power to put a smile on everyone's faces! She is incrediblely strong, and will use that strength as a driving force to recover.
Home is where the mum is. <3
Please share my story, and raise awareness!!
Any donation amount, great or small would be much appreciated as the cost of supportive accomodation, equipment and fees are very overwhelming.
Thank you greatly, kindly and deeply. An abundance of love, health and happiness to everyone! You're all truley beautiful!
