Disability Modifications on Brendan's Bungalow

My son Brendan is 16 years old and is profoundly disabled with complex medical care needs including severe spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, intractable epilepsy, scoliosis with a spinal fusion, osteoporosis, hip dysplasia, PEG fed, and being non-verbal. As his mother, I am a lone parent carer to him 24/7. Unfortunately, this precludes me from being able to work outside of the home and earn a salary which would enable me to provide financially for all of his many special requirements. I have been approved for the county council home modification grant, but there are costs over and above that grant amount, including some works which need to be completed prior to the modification work beginning. This fundraiser is to cover those costs.

As I've recently learned specifics of the works to be done and the associated costs being above the maximum grant amount, and considering I have no income from employment since I'm a full time carer, I've resigned myself to putting this fundraiser together. While I am very reluctant to do this, it is what he requires for his best, safe, care. This is the final step in Brendan's Bungalow becoming everything he needs it to be. So many people have been beyond generous, kind, and so compassionate in the past and I am truly forever grateful. So with all of this in mind, I again put my heart on my sleeve, asking for help.
