Hi everybody and thanks for taking the time to visit this page and hopefully help Kerry with the things she now needs. Most will know the story but for those who don't, this is why we are fundraising.
Kerry like millions of us had her Astra Zeneca jab at the beginning of April, unlike millions of us, she suffered an adverse reaction to it and was taken to hospital a week later with excruciating pains in her head. After receiving a scan at Rotherham it was confirmed she had a blood clot in her head and was immediately sent to Sheffield's Hallamshire Hospital. After two days she was rushed to theatre for a life saving operation to relieve the pressure on her brain and was given less than 40% chance of making it through the night. She'd had to have part of her skull removed and suffered a massive stroke, again we nearly lost her but again she somehow made it through. A week later fluid built up on her brain requiring another life saving operation to insert a drain in her brain. Spending another three weeks in intensive care and even having another operation to insert the drain into her skull. This was all attributed to the vaccine, (vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia) known as VITT. Slowly she began to come round with her husband Patrick never missing a day by her side. After a further four months in hospital she was finally given the OK to go home but only after having to convert the downstairs conservatory into a bedroom and wetroom, which alone has cost over £4000, with no help from the government at all. She is now confined to a wheel chair and is having daily physio therapy to try and help get some movement back into her left side. As a family we are strong but how Kerry has dealt with such a devastating situation is just amazing. She doesn't complain and just gets on with it. She will never work again and Pat is currently her full time carer, they have yet to receive a single penny from the benefit system after having their lives turned upside down.
We are raising money to buy a specialist chair and sofa so she can at least be comfortable at home anything extra will go towards Kerry's rehabilitation needs. Please don't think we are anti vaccination peddlers as we are not, millions of people have been helped, but for those who have suffered, then surely, they should be given the support they need, as they after all, were only doing what they were asked for the benefit of all. Thankyou for your support.
