This is a special fundraising page set up to help us buy Willow some much needed items on the road to recovery from a wheelchair to voice activated products. This is something we, as her friends near and far, can all do for her. Every little helps... More ...

As you all know Willow has had a very tough time these last 8 months. The cancer has gone but the series of mini strokes at the beginning of her treatment has left her with very partial vision and her coordination, nerve endings and mobility have all been shot to bits. At the moment she still needs 24/7 care for even the simplest actions we take for granted, like feeding herself, walking or washing.

We want to help. Initially she needed a new wheelchair and we hope to follow this up with some other items to make life easier. The family can only do so much as they are swamped with daily care duties. So this is something we, as close or long distance friends, can do.

First off we wanted to raise €125 for a new wheelchair. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we raised that within hours! Amazing!! The wheelchair has already been delivered to Willow. It will soon be decorated with a handmade cover by our lovely local machinist Moira Rankin and everyone who visits is welcome to decorate the chair with some ‘healing ribbon/ties’ and help customise it with go-faster hippy stripes

We are going to continue with this page. The reaction of us funding and then sorting the chair was obviously a huge relief to Rich who has so much on his plate. So next step is something like a voice activated computer or similar. We are checking products via ONCE and other websites for something suitable.

Watching Willow suffer these last 8 months has been heart wrenching for those around her. We can’t undo what has happened but we can perhaps make her ride on the road to recovery somewhat more comfortable.

We will post regularly on the Healing for Willow Facebook page where the funds have gone and how they have been spent. Thank you everyone so very very much.
