Kirstie’s Story

Kirstie has a neurological condition which leaves her with uncontrollable and often painful muscle spasms, severe muscle fatigue, tiredness, blinding migraines and sleep deprivation. She can fall without warning and, after a serious fall a few years ago when her leg completely separated from the hip, Kirstie was told that she may never walk again. However, after a series of operations and sheer determination, Kirstie is able to walk short distances with the aid of crutches.

Kirstie, who is married to a Coldstream Guards veteran, approached The Soldiers’ Charity for funding assistance for an all-terrain wheelchair to enable her to carry out everyday tasks including taking her children to school.
