Please help us raise money for specialist diagnosis and care for Olga McDonnell

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Over the past five years, Olga's physical condition has deteriorated from that of a healthy young woman to one of almost complete immobility. She and her family have to deal with the dreadful reality of her constant pain and discomfort. Olga is essentially wheel-chair bound and she requires round the clock assistance with everything from getting in and out of bed, to getting dressed, and preparing food. Two strong adults are required to help her to a standing position so that she can get the only exercise of which she is capable, consisting of short walks up and down the hallway in her parents' house.

A further blow to Olga's quality of life came when she started feeling pain on exposure to light. This has severely restricted her ability to leave the house, and even on how she passes her time at home.

Please help us raise our target of £10,000 so that her family can afford for Olga to attend a short residential at a centre for specialist analysis and pain-therapy.

Thank you!
