Help Ryan Nulty and Sepsis Awareness

£6,036 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 185 people in 3 months
My son Ryan is a 46 year old postman, he enjoys his job out and about all day, walking, cycling and meeting people.  He has two children and two grandchildren and is a great role-model for them all.  He has a dog called Jeffrey, a huge part of his world, he loves taking him out and about.  Ryan met Shaaron a couple of years ago and they started a new life together, everything seemed to be going well for them both.  

Suddenly out of the Blue, Sepsis struck, Ryan did his normal post round on Saturday 14 October 2018, but was feeling very unwell and thought it was flu.  By morning on the following day he was in the ICU unit of East Surrey hospital, by the the afternoon he was on life support and suffering with organ failure.

After a week he was transferred to St Thomas' in London and then on to St Heliers in Sutton for Dialysis, Ryan's spleen never did recover and was shattered leaving him vulnerable to infection.  Unfortunately, Ryan's feet had been affected by gangrene and he was discharged and told he would need to return in the New Year for a double amputation. Ryan's condition deteriorated and he became bedridden.

Finally, his surgery took place on  31st January and he remains in hospital recovering.

Throughout Ryan has remained incredibly brave and positive, but he has a long road ahead.

Our family are looking to raise money to assist with equipment to help him at home and in the future with his mobility.

We also hope to be able to help raise awareness of this dreadful infection that kills approximately 52,000 people in the UK each year.

This week Ryan went swimming, or as says, "it was more like bobbing". This goes to show that he is not letting the problems caused by Sepsis get in the way of him leading a normal life.
Last night a fund raising event was held at the New Moon pub in Southgate, Crawley. This was arranged by Kate, Sophie and Joseph, and Ryans grandson Teddy, who was to be seen dragging a coin collection bucket around. A big thank you to the staff at the 'New Moon' who were kept very busy through out the evening and for promoting the Sepsis awareness campaign on there T shirts. Also, I would like to thank all the people who attended the event and made it such a wonderful night. Thank you.

Ryan is making a remarkable recovery and seems to be adjusting to the changes that Sepsis has had on him. He has been for a fitting for his prosthetic s and should have them by early May. There is a social function being held in Crawley on Friday 3rd of May which I will update the details later on today. There has been a problem with the donations being made to the "gofundme" website regarding making donations. I have been asking the people at there website for help and there does not seem to be much of that happening at the moment. However, I will keep on trying. Please bare with me on this issue and I hope to have it sorted out soon.
