Help Amy to Walk Again.
I know most of you are aware of my granddaughter’s serious illness, which is officially incurable, but Amy has a real fighting spirit and is making progress at last. She has Complex Regional Pain Syndrome also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome in the USA. In addition she has developed Functional Neurological Disorder. She also has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Before the CRPS appeared she had no health problems at all and lived a normal healthy life, as a teacher. She taught reception class, the new kids, and they all adored her. Many of them have donated via their parents and Amy has received many good wishes cards and paintings from the children.
An article on page three of the local paper where my granddaughter Amy lives is available via the above link. I have put a copy here but it is probably too hard to read. She lives in Rugby, home of the best sport in the world - Rugby!
The article gives an update on her progress at the STEPS rehabilitation clinic in Sheffield, and they are working a miracle but she has far to go. Her crowd funding site has raised over £23000 so far, but at £5000 a week, she will need a lot more.
Several people here have been very generous and our whole family appreciate every single donation even if it’s just £5. We are organising a fundraising event on 12th July at Amy’s old school in Kenilworth, which will have live music, comedians, an amazing raffle and an auction of valuable items. You can only take part in the auction if you are there. You can buy tickets from www.helpamy.co.uk
We are expecting one or two celebrities to attend but I can’t say who until we have written confirmation. Even if you prefer not to donate or have already done so, I would be so pleased if you could share this page or better still her website at www.helpamy.co.uk
Amy also publishes vlogs and these can be accessed via the same web site.
Thank you for your time and patience, normal service will be returned shortly!
