Pauline needs rehab after stroke

Pauline is one of my good friends. She is the kind of friend that is always putting you first. She arranges baby showers without being asked, she listens and gives advice whenever needed and even when she had her stroke she wanted to make sure the person who helped her through it was ok.

Pauline had her stroke just before Christmas. Pauline is 32 years old. She spent, Christmas, New year and the best part of 3 months in hospital. She is now out but has lost the use of her left arm and has had to learn to walk again.

She needs help now that she’s at home. In hospital she was making so much progress with walking and learning to move her fingers in the hopes of eventually using her arm again. She was in the gym every day for 8 hours with physios and occupational therapists at hand.  Now home she is only entitled to a few hours a week with a physio in a different hospital. She has to get her fiancé who works fulltime to drive her there and back. She is at home all day every day by herself having to teach herself and motivate herself which for anyone would be a hard ask. 

We are looking to fund her physio and other treatments or requirements she will need along the way that the government won’t cover because they don’t believe she is disabled enough to claim disability.

Pauline wants to dance at her wedding next year when she marries her wonderful man Grant. We have to help her make that a dream come true.

Please give anything you can/want to. She is such a wonderful person and she just needs a little helping hand.
