Hey there,

As most of you know my name is Krystal Reynolds, and I am a 28 year old from the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.

My story begins on the 31st of January 2002, when I was at school studying my VCE. I was studying all of my prerequisites to go to James Cook University to study Marine Biology. But my dreams got crushed on this day.

I was in my Maths Methods class and I started to get an earache, then my sight went and I horribly started to drool. My teacher at the time asked if I wanted to go to the sick bay and I said yes. I stood up and fell back down straight away. The teacher asked everyone to leave the classroom and called an ambulance. I was taken to Frankston hospital.

Because I was so young the doctors did not think that it could of been a stroke or a TIA. They did some tests and sent me home and said I had to go to my GP in the morning.

Unfortunately I did not make it till the morning, at about 2am I had my major stroke and I could not walk, talk or do anything for myself.

I stayed strong and positive that I was going to be able to do everything again but my doctor's weren't so convinced. They told me that I probably should not get my hopes up and I probably will never move my arm again.

I was an inpatient at Frankston Rehabilitation Center for 4 months and I am still an outpatient there now 12 years on. I learnt to walk again within 4 months and talk again within 3 months. But I still have problems with my right side and arm in particular.

I have finally now been given a glimmer of hope by Dr Tobinick who believes that he quite possibly may be able to fix this condition. This new treatment in the USA is incredible, and it could change my life!! That's amazing I hear you say? WELL as with everything that is good with the world, it comes at a price.

So, this is where you guys come in! I'll be organising fundraising events in the future to help with raising money and am currently taking donations from any of the kind souls reading this who would like to help me and give me a better future.
