Help joanne get home to her family

Joanne Hughes the mother of ten children suddenly had a stroke on the 13th February last year. They didn't think that she would make it.

Then on the 16th February her brain suddenly swelled and doctors had to rush her into theatre to have a large part of her skull taken away to relieve the pressure. They didn't think that she would make it. She was then left in a hospital bed with very little help.

In August she was taken to Clatterbridge Rehab Centre but with the lack of initial treatment there is not much more that they can do. Joanne can not stand or use her left side and has very little long term and almost no short term memory.

In the meantime Tony her husband has been going to work and then traveling to the hospital every day while her 71 year old mother looks after the ten children.( aged between 2 and 17). It will take 2 years to do the adaptions to the house but with some small changes we can get her home.

 To help Joanne Hughes return to the family home. By donating we can help this happen sooner.
