Hi my name is Valerie I have hired many a trades man through your website.
I was an active Swimming Teacher for special needs and worked with children with Cancer for over twenty years.
Sadly I was involved in a road traffic accident many years ago and was left unable to walk for two and a half years.
I have now a number of chronic medical condition and require daily intensive treatments for which are life sustaining.
There is no known cure for my health condition and I live in multi-layered compression bandages on x4 limbs.
I have home oxygen and get by the best I can.
I struggle to sleep due to pain and chronic sleep Apnea.
I now am facing needing x2 total knee replacements due to advanced stage three Osteoarthritis in both knees and my spine.
Prior to my multiple illnesses I used to manage an allotment with my late father who sadly passed a few years ago and enjoyed many a weekend in the garden but sadly unable now and spend my day surrounded by Nurses, Carers and Therapists.
I have gone from being incredibly active and doing for others to being primary house bound however continue to plan my garden project in my mind.
I am desperately trying to dedicate my garden in honour of my late fathers memory.
I have achieved some but takes many years to achieve the smallest amount of work for both physical and financial reasons...
I will complete my memory garden and would very much appreciate any support and help you can offer.
I would like to inspire others through my own dedication and commitment to a project that means a lot to a person and failure is not an option.
I believe that what the mind believes our bodies will achieve.
