Thank You to Sunrise Medical
With much help from MS Australia, Inner East Community Health and Sunrise Medical, I was lucky enough to receive the most awesome, fantastic, comfortable and easy to use Quickie Q7 wheelchair in green to match my Australian uniform.
I have been putting off purchasing my own wheelchair for some time now due to the cost that our family has been unfortunately been unable to afford, therefore when I’ve been sick, we would usually just hire a chair. With the help and generosity of Sunrise Medical I now have my own chair, which has made things a lot easier for myself day to day, and when I need to travel for competitions… like this coming Monday in Mexico!!
I am extremely looking forward to competing in Mexico in style, showing off my new custom made wheels =)
Having this condition, I admit I had some dread about whether people would see me differently being in a chair. I’m excited to say that zipping around in the Quickie is totally liberating and I literally get pumped up about using it.
We took it for a spin around Camberwell tonight and Jimmy loved it, wanting to go fast… then getting scared and yelling “Mummy SLOW DOWN!!!!” – he even had a turn in it and was able to push himself around a little bit – and he’s only 3!!!
So thank you again Sunrise Medical, I can’t thank you enough, and I look forward to sharing my adventures around the world in the Quickie – only 4 sleeps ’til I head out to Mexico!!
