Emma's Hero Arm Fund

Tax deductible

Hi everyone , 

So a lot of you will have heard me getting excited about the Hero Arm and I’ve decided to go for it and set up this crowdfunding page to try and raise money to get one.

I can not begin to tell you how excited I am to play around and practice with the Hero Arm and see all of the amazing things that I will be able to do with it. When I went to the open bionics lab last week I was amazed that these hands exist, and now I’m buzzing with ideas of what it will help me with. For example just being able to hold my hair dryer easier will make that process quicker, I mean the amount of times I drop it is so annoying!!

If you don’t know a Hero Arm is a multi grip bionic arm. You can see it in action here:  -

How awesome is that? 

It is important for me to get a Hero Arm now because when I found out that I had nerve damage in my right hand from overuse it did scare me. I rely a lot on my right hand and that thought of not being able to use any hands did worry me. Getting the Hero Arm will let me take some of that pressure off my right hand and hopefully help me heal. 

I have the best friends and family that I could ever ask for. I know I am a bit nuts but you really have given me the confidence that I have today and I won’t be able to afford to get this Hero Arm without your support. So I am asking from the bottom of my heart for you to please help me with this campaign and if you can’t afford to donate please share it as wide and far as you can. I really appreciate your help because the Hero Arm will make such a difference in my life.
