Momentum to help me walk so I can start to live

I was born with a condition called Talipes, and in the 80s the course of treatment was invasive surgery to correct the position of the foot, then it was considered the best course of treatment but like somethings time has proved the opposite.  My foot is at a stage where pain management is the only option, because the foot and ankle is such a complicated joint surgery is no longer the best course of action. My decision is to have my foot amputated due to the immense pain and limitations, but I'd also like to postpone for as long as possible which I hope this custom brace will do. Sadly it's not available through the NHS and I'm unable to get funding to help. I've not been able to run since I was 21 and I've also missed out on doing the regular dad things with my girls because of the limitations my foot has caused. The Exosym does offer a glimmer of hope that I'll be able to do some of the things I've missed so much.   Recent surgery didn't go as well as hoped and sadly has caused my foot and ankle to relapse to its previous position, I'll have to wait 9 months until we know how bad, the Exosym will give me some pain relief but most of all a chance to run and do the normal dad stuff my girls have missed out on. It will give me time and help me to make more memories  with my girls until plans can be made by my specialist surgeon.   Thank you for taking the time to read this
