As a Trailblazer I’ll be focusing my campaigning on services like hydrotherapy and physiotherapy, which are essential to my well being. I have found that exercise, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy are very effective ways of slowing down the progression of my muscular dystrophy. It is imperative that these services are easily available to help keep people as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Trailblazers will give me an opportunity to make friends with people in a similar situation to myself and to work with them to push for progress.
I personally am doing very well for my age and still walk using my leg braces. I hope to inspire and encourage younger members of the group to keep active. I think this is a great opportunity to make a real positive difference for people with neuromuscular conditions and hopefully all people with physical disabilities.
