Buying mobility scooters for MS sufferers.
A good friend spotted that MS sufferer Alice Tilley would benefit from a mobility scooter. She applied to the Axis Foundation for help on her friend’s behalf.
Alice Tilley, 28, has an aggressive form of relapse and remitting MS. When she has a relapse Alice is unable to walk unaided. She cannot drive and is totally reliant on her parents to get her around.
Applying for a friend
Claire, Alice’s friend, also suffers from MS.
After she applied to us, the Axis Foundation bought a lightweight mobility scooter for Claire. And so Claire applied for one for her friend Alice too.
“I have limited mobility and the mobility scooter that the Axis Foundation purchased for me gave me a huge amount of independence. A mobility scooter will help Alice too,” says Claire.
Thanks from Alice
And the Axis Foundation was delighted to help Claire’s friend.
Thanking us for our donation of £2,175 Alice said: “I was able to choose the world’s lightest mobility scooter which I can pack into our car. This is going to make such a difference to my independence and the management of my mobility. Thank you Axis Foundation.”
