My mother has always taught me to set my goal and chase it, quitting is for those without drive or a strong enough reason to succeed. I’ve watched mum manage three businesses at the same time as looking after the house (with the help of my stepdad), as well as fly me all over the country looking for the next potential ‘cure’. She has always been one of my biggest inspirations. She taught me that the arthritis is a part of me but at no stage is it ever to control me. It is based on this strength and my need to help others with disabilities.
It is from this need that the idea for EnableDisabled.com was born. I have been working hard to build a website that is designed to assist those with disabilities, their carers and the frail-aged by providing up to date information about services that are available in their area (or online) which may improve their quality of life. The internet is drenched with misinformation and it is so easy to become caught up in ‘hype’ when you are desperate for answers. Having a disability myself I am all too familiar with this scenario.
To date, I have not been able to access any Government funding. I’m not sure the Government was ever contemplating anything as complex as this website would be created, so it has never fit neatly enough into the boxes required to access any funding. So far I have had to source funds myself and will soon be launching a crowdfunding campaign to help get EnableDisabled.com across the line.
If you would like more information, or to receive updates please send me an email EnableDisabled@outlook.com.
I look forward to having you with me while we make this dream a reality!
