Hi my name is Jack
I contracted an illness called meningitis when I was just four weeks old and suffered a series of mini strokes, resulting in a complex condition called Cerebral Palsy. Although I am keen to be active I have difficulties in getting my legs, arms and eyes to do what I want them to do.There is equipment out there that is vital for me to develop and improve my senses and coordination. But this type of purpose built gear comes at a cost (well so my dad tells me).
I have now reached an age where my family find it hard to carry me up to bed at night, a solution to this would be for me to sleep downstairs. I have approached the local councils to assist with the costs involved but they want me to sleep in the dinning room - not ideal. So since I am unable to walk, sit or stand unaided. I need to build a small extension to have my very own downstairs wetroom and bedroom. My new bedroom will need a specialist bed which will also be used as a dressing area. Ceiling track hoists wheelchair access. The wet room will need to be wheelchair accessible and will again need a full ceiling track hoist system. Building this extension will enable me to continue living with my Dad and Sister.
So please please dig deep and donate now every penny will go to help me enjoy time with my family.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my page.
