Amazing person!

Recently, Siobhan has been through what i can only imagine to be the most cruel episode for someone of her expertise and specialty. 

Siobhan recently experienced Sudden Deafness and loss of balance (Vertigo) that could be due to Menieres.

Ménière's disease (MD) is a disorder of the inner ear that is characterized by episodes of feeling like the world is spinning (vertigo), ringing in the ears (tinnitus), hearing loss, and a fullness in the ear.

Because of this, Siobhan has suffered hearing loss, and other symptoms including Diplacusis, which affects the ability to discerne pitches and tones between the two ears. 

The other main issue is loss of balance, which can lead to the inability to walk, and a loss of mobility and independence. 

Now, with all that on board, if you know Siobhan, you will know how independant and outgoing she is. All this must be a huge issue for her.

There is little we can do from the outside to help siobhan, but it is a long road and there is one thing that i know will help out greatly! 

Let's get Siobhan a Mobility Scooter for daily use (and music festivals)!!!

You can get a pretty decent one for about 2500! and any extra money will go towards a towball attachment for car transport.

This will return some independance, some mobility, and allow Siobhan to continue to do all the amazing things that she does for everyone else!

Ideally we would be able to get this done before Meredith Music Festival. 


Siobhan is amazing, lets help her out through this tough time!
