Ianthe needs a lift : Fight against MS

For those of you that don’t know, my beautiful Mum was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 10 years ago.

Within the last few years, it has progressed, and is making everyday things, such as walking from her room to the kitchen, almost impossible to do..She is extremely tired most days and suffers from chronic muscle spasm pain amongst other ailments. Her quality of life is suffering.

She and her husband, have had to make many life changes to try and make her as comfortable as possible. She is no longer well enough to work a regular 9-5 job, so she has put her creativity to work, and has started her own business creating personalized gifts for friends and family all over! Unfortunately, that has put a tremendous amount of the financial burden on her wonderful husband, John.

John works hard to make it possible for her to be home, he works long hours out of the home! When he’s not working he’s home helping my mum. He adores her and is her rock! We are so thankful she has him! He has done everything he can to make her happy.... he has even built her a shop so she can create from home! Unfortunately her shop is in the basement, and it is very difficult for her to walk up and down the stairs... she has been staying in her bedroom so not to exhaust herself with the everyday things we all take for granted! It is nearly impossible for her to get out and do grocery shopping, and everyday errands because she tires so quickly....her cane helps, but only so much.

She has been given the opportunity for a power wheelchair, however in order to be approved for the wheelchair they need to install a lift in their home.... a lift would make it so she can easily move from her bedroom to her craft room, and a wheelchair would make it possible to get out and about with her family and friends, and most importantly her beloved husband and grandchildren ❤️

She has always put our family first! She is a bright light that showers everyone around her with love. She has worked incredibly hard for her three, now adult, children. We just want her to be able to enjoy life with us!

We have put together a gofundme account in her name.... we are hoping to raise enough money to get the lift and make it possible for her to get around again! Every little bit helps!

If you would like to help our beautiful mum, sister, wife, please know what an amazing gift it would be for her to have her life back!
