Justin Yerbury was diagnosed with MND over 2 years ago and is now almost totally paralysed needing 24hour care for daily living. He is artificially ventilated with a ventilator to allow him to breathe. Justin is currently in the ICU at Macquarie University Hospital waiting to be allocated monetary assistance or for your help to raise funds to allow him to come home and go back to work.
Justin still works at Wollongong University and his commitment is beyond belief. Please help him achieve his goal of living with MND and working to find a cure.
Justin and his family have ongoing expenses and the NDIS have been reluctant to fund his needs and have recently denied the wheelchair application. Justin has a hire wheelchair which is constantly uncomfortable as it is not big enough with Justin being 194cm. The Family also needs a vehicle to transport Justin and a modified bathroom as well as many medical expenses. If you could find it in your heart and pockets to provide some funding towards any of these needs it would alleviate the familys burden.
The devastation of a MND diagnosed is unexplainable. To know you will slowly be forced to live in a motionless body and not be able to eat, swallow or breathe. But please also consider the financial strain on top of the emotional pain.
Dig deep and help Justin. Thank you.
