Hi, my name is Pollie!

Pollie Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi i am registered disabled. In 2005 and again in 2014 I had major surgery on my head and neck for cancer. This has left me with a facial disfigurement. I also have arthritis in my spine. The main reason for joining the group is because our daughter has recently had an AVM (Arterial Venus Malformation) bleed in the brain - October 2016 and it has left her disabled. Very much like a stroke. I want to hopefully join with like minded people and in doing so pass encouragement, hope and help to our precious daughter. She is married with 5 year old boy and 7 month old girl who was delivered as an emergency caesarean birth on Christmas Day at 31 weeks whilst her Mummy was still in a coma.
