Funded Item | Nirav's Electric Wheelchair

18 Sep 2018

Nirav, from Nottingham, has merosin deficit congenial muscular dystrophy and is reliant on an electric wheelchair for all his mobility needs. His previous chair was old and had been discontinued meaning he could no longer get replacement parts. DTD Charity were able to help by contributing towards his new chair which in turn has helped Nirav to continue to be an active member of the Muscular Dystrophy UK's Trailblazers, a network of young disabled people who campaign to remove the barriers that prevent them from living full and independent lives. He writes to say, "I sit a lot straighter and I feel and the seat raising function has definitely been a life changer. Many many thanks once again for all your assistance."
