This is the story of a lady and a gentleman Tracey and Peter Clohessey - Tracey has helped hundreds of parents at Birmingham's Heartlands hospital as a paediatric nurse, Peter has always been an honest hard working bloke, driving lorries etc etc.

Less than two years ago Peter was a fit healthy man until he was struck down by Motor Neurone Disease. If you do not know about this disease, it is life restricting where patients gradually loose muscle and the ability to live a normal life. Just two years on Peter is reliant on a motorised wheelchair and on continuous breathing apparatus.

Yesterday 16/5/16 Tracey posted this heartfelt status on her FB page.

“I've thought long and hard before posting this, but feel now that it's the right thing to do for Peter Clohessy and all those others suffering from Motor Neurone Disease. So, today we had our application for a disabled facilities grant refused! In effect that means Pete can never have a shower or use the bathroom in the way it was intended. We are not rich and I'm currently off work caring for him. Yet our neighbours
as we speak are having a Solihull council funded extension for let's say a not disabled person. Pete is reliant on respiratory support 24/7, he has a motorised wheelchair but no ramps to get him out of the house. We were just normal hard working people, loving our jobs and life and now this evil disease has taken over! I know I'm ranting, but would request that my post is shared +++ so that we can improve the quality of lives for our loved ones, unfortunate to become so unwell x”

When I read this I my heart sank, if all her friends, my friends and all the people who Tracey has helped over the years could find it in their heart to make a small donation, together we can give something back to this wonderful lady and proud man in the form of a wet room.

I already have contractors lines up who will help fit at no cost.   

Thank you in anticipation
