Hi. My name is Mel and I live in Edinburgh. My daughter Emily is 14 and has a severe form of brittle bone disease. She uses a wheelchair full time and is in S2 at mainstream high school. Due to long periods of absence she is socially isolated and would love to meet a girl of a similar age who is in a similar position.  Please get in touch if you'd like to chat more
