As most of you know my mum has been living with MS for thirty years and unfortunately it has gotten to the point that she struggles to keep her feet down in her wheelchair for longer than one hour before having to put them up due to pain. Although we all love the regular “foots-ies” she posts of her feet up on the train, this is a daily struggle that now impacts on her ability to engage in and enjoy day to day activities.
This year her Mum (my Nanny-Jean) in England is turning 80 and my Mum would love nothing more than to celebrate with her. Although the invention of teleportation would be ideal to help my Mum get over there in one piece without enduring 24+ hours of significant pain, a business class ticket with a bed to put her feet up will have to do. As most of you know these tickets do not come cheap!! Especially when you need 2x tickets to account for your essential carer.
My Mum has been talking about this trip for years now and I think she is the most deserving person to have us all help her get there. Anyone who has met her knows that she brightens all of our lives on a daily basis and is the most positive person out there. Let’s give her a real reason to smile.
