Hi all,

I hope this message finds you well. I am doing good under the circumstances and read the forum often :D

I am fund-raising for All terrain wheelchair. Unfortunately the NHS do not supply active chairs, however they did supply my all singing all dancing pavement chair with financial help from the MNDA which I truly appreciated. Please donate if you can afford and please share on your facebook wall and twitter. Many thanks xx http://www.gofundme.com/g51ifs

Hi Jeannie,

Great to hear from you! :)

I escaped from hospital on the 7th August. I still have to fight my social services. They keep trying to bang me into a residential home against my will. I have a perfectly adequate home that I own myself. Steve Bell from our MNDA has been supporting me well. He has an idea what I'm up against. The Ombudsman is showing an interest in my case, so I expect there will be more fireworks.

Thanks for your help while I was in Salford Royal. I now have no difficulty in imagining what goes on in our institutions, truly frightening places.

Good luck with your appeal, now off to donate to it.

Hi Graham and Night walker, firstly a huge thank you for your kind generosity and thoughtfulness are greatly appreciated. :o

Graham, I am truly sorry to hear your saga continues grrr you're aware the local authority (LA) cannot force you to live in a residential home - this option amounts to a violation of your right to private life under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights as informed by the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled Persons. It might be worth bringing this to their (LA) attention, I'd so love to see their reaction upon reading it ;)

Hi Jeannie

There is the Als Guardian Angel foundation. Their purpose is to help those with this illness in obtaining equipment and other needs that can not be met do to financial or other reasons.

It might be worth reaching out to them, they are based in the US but they might also assist those in need out of this country as well. You can just Google the site.

YAY! So glad you did Jeannie.

I read articles and saw an interview about him and his organization he sounds like a man who gets the job done, and has no time or patience for nonsense when it comes to those suffering with this illness, he sincerely has their best interest at heart. I also read he gets letters from everywhere on the globe so I'm hoping he can lend you a hand.

keep us posted
