You may know that Herrad of Access Denied: Living with MS is in desperate need of a special type of air pressure cushion. What she needs is an air cushion which changes pressure as you sit on it to prevent the development of pressure sores.
Unfortunately, in the Netherlands access to such expensive and specialized equipment is severely limited and Herrad has not been provided with this important tool. In fact, she is now in such a state to require 3-weeks of bed rest in an attempt to heal wounds.
This is a struggle she has dealt with for awhile, often asking questions regarding treatments we might use in the US to help heal/prevent open sores from developing.
Anne of Disabled Not Dead has started a campaign to collect funds to provide Herrad with the equipment she so desperately needs.
I have decided to contributing all of the existing funds in my PayPal account and have set it up to accept donations specifically for the purchase of Herrad's special cushion. The cost for one to be custom-made for her wheelchair is approximately $600.
I am leaving it up to Anne to make the actual purchase arrangements as she knows exactly what it is that Herrad needs. If you don't already know, Anne's career was in medicine and this is her expertise.
So please, to donate to Herrad's Cushion click on the PayPal Button below. Together we can make this happen for a fellow MS Blogger in need.
