Help me to Tokyo

In 2014 I went to the Commonwealth Games, represented Wales & won bronze in the 200m freestyle S14 swim.
I then went on to the European Swim Champs in Eindhoven, representing GB & brought home 2 silvers in the 100m bk & 200IM, & bronze in the 200m freestyle.
The following year I broke my wrist, my coach of 5 years moved on and I could not adjust.
I lost all my funding and felt that no one believed in me.
I stopped training properly and my life declined.
Last October I came to my senses and decided that it's not over - time to fight back.
I found myself a new coach and got back into serious training.
In December I raced - 4 events - snagged 4 British Records.
I'm back!
Still unfunded though and it's hard to live on fresh air.
My parents try to help but it's hard.
Please please help me get to Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2020 - stopping off at the Gold Coast in 2018 for the Commonwealth Games, & maybe Mexico later this year for the World Swim Champs.
Keep my dream alive - help me keep training.
Thank you
Jack
