Come and cook the night away
Have you ever woken up in the morning with a running nose, sneezing and body aches. With everything hurting and you felt like it was the end of you?

Imagine for a moment that your body ached and hurt every day.
Many people live like this and through no fault of their own. There are many illness's and disabilities which can cause pain, weakness, fatigue and so much more.

Many different types of equipment can make the lives of people with an illness (or more than one) easier. One of these things is of course, the trusty wheelchair. These are a necessity for so many and these can be very expensive no matter the type or size.

In Wyndham there is an inspirational young woman who battles everyday with multiple conditions; Fibromyalgia, osteopenia, psoriatic arthritis, migraines, bursitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), heart block, fatty liver disease, EDS/Hyperflexibility Syndrome, gastric issues, chronic nausea, chronic Costocondritis, Lupus and Pernicious Anaemia, Endometriosis.

Please visit her FB page HERE and show some support.

Jess is an aspiring model and has a spirit which shines and an attitude which is so positive, despite all she goes through. Please visit Jess' modeling page HERE
