Powerwheelchair for Milosz

Milosz lives with his family in Market Harborough, Leicestershire and is diagnosed with X-linked myotubular myopathy. Over the last six months Milosz’s needs have changed and he now requires a specialised powered wheelchair.

Milosz

Milosz’s manual wheelchair has become too small to him and the back support is no longer efficient. In addition, Milosz had developed mild scoliosis which requires specialised back support. And while Milosz can self propel his manual wheelchair indoors, he relies on people to push him on longer journeys outdoors. As a pre teenage boy, Milosz craves some freedom and a powered wheelchair would enable him to be more independent.

Milosz’s family began the process of arranging for a power wheelchair in September 2019, applying for one through a charity but due to coronavirus, the charity were unable to fund all of it and organising fundraising events at this time is difficult, so the family are now aiming to raise the £6,700 needed themselves, before Milosz starts secondary school in September.

Stanley

Milosz’s friend Stanley is helping to fundraise also, by running a marathon. Starting on 26 May Stanley began running a mile every day for 26 days and is aiming to raise £2,000.
