my good friend Olaf, whom I’ve known since we were teenagers, has started this crowdfunding project for me.
After taking care of the urgently needed new wheelchair, he now literally wants to get me back on my feet. In 2017 I was able to have ten training sessions with the exoskeleton. During this time I built up a lot of muscles. I could stand very balanced and felt bodily and mentally strengthened. Unfortunately this training is declared “intensive therapy” and is not covered by health insurance.
Since stopping therapy with the exoskeleton I have lost over 10kg (22lbs) of muscle tissue. Transfers via standing are much more difficult now, I have a lot less balance and strength and feel much more insecure during transfer. I also sit on only skin and bones and therefore have painful wounds.
Every bit of help makes a difference!
It would be awesome, if you'd print out my logo - e.g. on a piece of paper, cardboard or a banner - and take it with you on a skydive, into the wind tunnel, on top of the mountain, to the beach, to a festival or on a bike tour and either take a picture or film it. Your pictures or video clips would let me "take part" in your activities and I could post them in my Facebook profile and my blog. Can't wait to see what you come up with this year !
