Kelly’s leg

Hey everyone! Firstly thanks for visiting my page. Secondly this is actually really hard for me to do. I am not the kind of person who likes asking for a hand out, I’m the one who loves helping other causes! But this time I need some help. When I first lost my leg I thought I would be able to get the best leg I deserved, needed or wanted. That wasn’t the case, ( due to losing it to cancer ) so after wearing a leg that was available to me and realising I wouldn’t be able to live a fulfilled life and without back pain, my family and I took out a loan to purchase a microprocessor knee which allowed me to literally climb mountains and navagate my way through life the way I had always wanted. Fast forward 12 years,  I’ve been lucky to have had help with a leg in the past but unfortunately these legs have a time limit and mine is well pretty much done. I’ve been trialling other legs ( a lot cheaper legs ) and well I’m struggling quite a lot, with back pain and honestly just taking a few steps backwards with my mobility. It’s not as safe nor as functional. I thought I would give it a really good go and go on holiday with my family ( while 20 weeks pregnant) and I’m actually writing this laying in bed while my family walk around site seeing. So for me the next step is to get some help in purchasing another leg to help me get back to my fit happy self :) thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your help.
