What is my story? What am I fundraising for?

Hi, my name is Fozzy Craig Lai, and I need a scooter.

Insurance will not cover a scooter that fits in my car, which is key to my unrestricted participation in my community! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2014, though I felt the impact and dealt with the symptoms for some time before that. At this point, I am not able to walk more than one city block without severe pain nor can I ride a bike, because I have too much pain in my hands and legs. This means that I need to use my car to travel everywhere, and can only go to places where I can park close by and not have to walk around inside.

I am restricted in where I can go with my kid, who is 10 years old- I want to be able to take her out to the Science Centre, and the Museum, and all the places a child wants to go. But this is difficult and sometimes impossible because I need to rent a wheelchair at these places AND have someone else to push me, I cannot expect my partner to shoulder this responsibility because he is most often at work and he has taken on other extra responsibilities due to my chronic pain. A scooter will make these trips possible for us!

Having a scooter will help my anxiety because I will be able to go out into the community rather than being stuck at home. As well, I won't have to worry about whether I will be able to find a place to sit, or if there will be a wheelchair that I can use there. It will also be a huge benefit to my kid, who is looking forward to being able to go out and have adventures with me! Imagine being a kid whose parent cannot take them out- it is really disappointing for her.

How much do I need, and what will it be used for?

I need a total of $5000, and that will be used to buy both the scooter, as well as the lift that will allow me to put it in my car for travel. This also accounts for the extra service charges for taking credit cards on the platform.

Please considering donating to my scooter fund- you'll be improving not just my life, but the life of my family! I also appreciate this being shared across social media- the more people who see this, the better!
