I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease 11 years ago and my diaphragm, tongue, and mouth muscles are weakening. This makes breathing and talking very difficult. My speech is slurred and the volume of my voice is very low. When I’m out in town, supermarket, social events or any noisy environment I cannot be heard even by people who know me well. Eventually I will be unable to talk at all and I will need this device that I will control with my eyes (as my arms are becoming weaker) to communicate with my family, relay my everyday needs to my carers and also enable me to interact socially now and in the future. Being unable to speak to people is very frustrating and you feel very isolated when you cannot join in a conversation. This device is a Tobii I15 that will not only give me a voice but also allow me to control my TV, Lights etc, text on my mobile and access the internet. I also want to write a book but my arms tire to quick to do that at the moment. I have decided to shave my hair off to raise money on the 16th of July (my 40th birthday) as I am recognised for my bright wacky hair. Monies raised will go towards the Tobii I15, a wheelchair mount, installation costs and fees incurred for processing payments.
